Batlle Organic Milan Virtudes cabbage, very resistant to frost
Milan Virtudes cabbage (Brassica oleracea sabauda) produces large, curly-textured leaves of an intense bluish-green colour. It develops a slightly oval, voluminous and very dense heart. This variety withstands cold very well and can be cultivated successfully in all types of substrates as long as they are deep.
The ideal time to germinate the seeds is in May-July in the seedbed, so that the seedlings are ready in June-August, and the cabbage harvest in autumn from October onwards. Best results are obtained by placing 2-3 seeds in the seedbed, cover with 0.5-1cm of soil rich in organic matter, either worm humus, compost or cured manure.
Then water abundantly and place in a sunny spot at a temperature of about 25°C to accelerate the germination process. In about 30-45 days with a size of about 10-15 cm, it is ready to transplant into the final pot or the vegetable patch observing a planting frame of 50x50cm.

It requires considerable watering and does not tolerate drought. The substrate must offer adequate drainage to avoid waterlogging. The substrate should be well drained to avoid waterlogging. The soil around the cabbages can be padded to help retain moisture and maintain the temperature. This also helps to encourage microbial activity in the substrate, enhancing the development and health of our cultivation.
The use of a drip or automatic irrigation system optimises the plants watering, ensuring that they receive the right amount for optimal root and aerial development, boosting the final yield.
Within 5-6 months of transplanting, the cabbage is ready to harvest and to enjoy the large, fleshy leaves with their silky texture and intense aroma. It is certainly an ideal winter food, providing lots of fibre, vitamins A, C and calcium.
