Reaching maturity in about 60-65 days, Golden Acre cabbages are often among the first cabbages to be harvested from the garden in the spring.
At peak harvest time, early Golden Acre cabbage plants produce heads that range from 3-5 lbs. (1.4-2.3 kg.). These smooth cabbage heads are exceptionally firm, and a good choice for growth in smaller garden spaces.
The crisp, crunchy texture of Golden Acre cabbage variety makes it a fantastic choice for use in slaw and stir fry recipes.
Early Golden Acre cabbages will also require rich soil. A combination of high quality finished compost and nitrogen rich soil amendments are usually recommended for those wishing to form large cabbage heads.
