Cabbage – Primax


Packet (~120 seeds)


Our first year farming, we got hooked on Primax cabbage. With exceptional earliness, uniformity and great field holding ability, it beat out 7 other cabbages in our variety trial. These tender, medium-sized heads with excellent mild flavor are best grown spring through mid-summer. A few years ago we panicked when we couldn’t find seed for it anywhere due to crop failures. Thankfully, our friends at Adaptive Seeds and Greenbank Farm tracked down some dusty old Primax packets, allowing us to rescue this beloved variety from the brink of extinction. We’re thrilled to have this top-notch market-variety back in the fold.
