Soil Testing


Soil can be tested any time of the year, as nutrient levels vary only slightly from season to season. Fall and early winter are the best times to have soil tested. The labs are not as busy as they are during the spring and it leaves more time for planning and applying corrective fertilizer and pH adjusters.

This rugged hybrid has performed well from the Deep South in the winter to the North in the summer. The large round heads are a beautiful blue-green color. Use close spacing, 10-12” for market use and wide spacing, 18-24” for sauerkraut. This cabbage can thrive in almost any kind of soil, but prefers to have mulch or manure. 85 days after germination, be prepared to harvest 4-6 lb heads. “Bravo” has a sweet flavor and is crack resistant.
