Cheers Cabbage is a large-sized hybrid cabbage with good disease resistance. It is vigorous and produces uniform, large framed plants. The plants have good wrap leaves. The heads are blue-green in color and globe shaped with a short core. A short core means that more of the head of cabbage is available for use. Heads weigh 4.5-5 pounds.
Cheers Cabbage is resistant to fusarium yellows and black rot.
Cabbages prefer cooler weather and will survive light frost. They can be grown in regular garden soil that is fertile and enriched with humus. Light, sandy soil is good for early crops. Experienced gardeners usually plant 2 or 3 varieties that mature in sequence to provide a succession of heads. Be careful, however, not to set out too many plants because heads go out of prime eating condition pretty fast.
Water the transplants right after planting. Cultivate very shallow every couple of weeks to keep weeds down. Cabbage uses a lot of the nourishment from the soil, so a 5-10-5 fertilizer should be dusted between the rows a month after planting at 25 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet then watered in well.
Spring Cabbages should be picked before hot weather causes the heads to split. Cabbage is high in beta-carotene, vitamin C and fiber.
Plant in full sun 12-24″ part in 24″ rows. Cheers Cabbage matures 80 days after transplant.
