Brassica oles. capitata alba

Traditional German cabbage, originating from the Filder plateau in southern Germany - where this remarkable cabbage is still celebrated each year with the Filderkraut festival!

The pointed head resembles a huge cabbage, but is a hardy and slightly loose good white cabbage, which has traditionally been used for sauerkraut. Can also be steamed, boiled or used in salad. Slowly developing big, nice heads. Not suitable for winter storage. Place in a sunny position in nutrient- and humus-rich soil.

Pointed cabbage is also known as hispi cabbage, hearted cabbage and sweetheart cabbage.
