Kaitlin F1 Cabbage  Organic Non-GMO Kaitlin F1 Hybrid Cabbage - Sauerkraut is once again taking the world by storm, at least here in the Northeast where this value added product is commonly found as part of CSA shares and at local farmers' markets. Kaitlin is a large, late season sauerkraut cabbage that produces high yields of very white, dense cabbages high in dry-matter, making it especially suited for sauerkraut. The white coloring indicates high levels of Vitamin C. Holds very well in the field and matures uniformly for late season processing. Mid term storage.

Days to maturity - 94 days

Organic Cabbage - Growing and Seed Saving Information

Printable version of this page


Cabbage is a hardy biennial in the Brassicaceae family, sharing species name Brassica oleracea with cauliflower, broccoli, collards, kale, brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi. Cabbage varieties encompass many shapes, colors and textures.

Brassica oleracea

  • Ball head – the most common spherical shape includes varieties that are bred for early maturity (Primax), sauerkraut (Kaitlin), and winter storage, (Impala). Ball head cabbages can be red or green.
  • Arrowhead- these lovely cone shaped cabbages are often on the small side and best for fresh market.
  • Savoyed - the savoy type has deeply veined, curly leaves that make for a very attractive head which has great cold tolerance.

Brassica rapa var. Pekinensis

  • Napaalso known as Chinese cabbage, this type has a similar shape to romaine lettuce. It has broad white midribs and pale green tender savoyed leaves.

Soil and Nutrient Requirements

Cabbages prefer well drained fertile soil that is within the range of 6.0-7.5 pH. A general guideline is 2-3 lbs of 8-16-16 fertilizer over 100 sq ft of garden area two weeks before planting.  If boron is not present in your soils, consider adding 1 Tbs per 100 sq ft. Best quality arises from loose well drained fertile soils.


Full sun is best for fastest growth, although light shade can help plants with the heat of summer.

Seeding Depth


Seeding Rate

48M seeds/acre (6.5 oz /acre) using 2 seeds/ft, 24” row spacing. M=1000

Plant Spacing

for fresh market 10-18”; for storage and processing 18-24”

Row Spacing

for fresh market 12-18", for storage and processing 18-34”

When to Sow

Direct sow when daytime soil temps warm to 75°F. Start seeds indoors or in cold frames 4-6 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 75°F but seeds will germinate in soils as cool as 50°F. Early varieties can be transplanted after danger of hard frost has passed. Mid-late season storage or processing types can be transplanted in June-early July for fall harvest. Napa cabbages are best direct seeded or transplanted in mid-May for July harvest.

Frost Tolerant


Drought Tolerant

No. Mature heads are vulnerable to splitting under stress and especially rain following a dry spell. Keep moisture even if possible.

Heat Tolerant

There are heat tolerant varieties available.

Seed Specs

75M-175M seeds/lb (125M avg); 4,500- 11M seeds/oz (7,750 avg). M=1,000

Seeding Rate

43,560 seeds/acre (~6oz/acre) using 2 seeds/ft, 24” row spacing.

Seed Coating / Pelleting Info

Some of the varieties we carry receive an organic film coating applied to the seed, which make the seed easier to see during planting.


Cabbage is mature when the tight outer leaf of the head begins to fold back on itself. Cut heads flat on underside.


Cabbage is best stored at 32°F, with high humidity and good air circulation. Green, actively growing, disease-free heads keep best.

Pest Info

  • Cabbage looper, imported cabbage worm, and diamondback moth are of the Lepidoptera order and can thus be controlled by Bacillus thuringiensis (such as Dipel DF) and/or spinosad (such as Entrust™), preferentially in rotation with one another to prevent selection of resistant individuals (check with your certifier before applying).
  • Protect plants from flea beetles by using floating row covers in the early season.
  • Root maggots can be controlled by applying beneficial nematodes.

Disease Info

  • Black rot (Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris) first appears as V-shaped, yellow lesions at leaf margin. Infected plants should be pulled up immediately, and plantings should never be worked during wet conditions.
  • Fusarium yellows, caused by the bacteria Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinan, manifests as yellowing of the lower leaves 2-4 weeks after transplanting.  Yellowing moves to upper leaves and ultimately causes wilt.
  • Fungal diseases can be prevented by spraying with copper hydroxide (such as Champion WP™and/or oxidate (such as Storox™), but are best prevented by production practices that build soil and promote vigorous plant growth.
  • Clubroot is a soil borne disease which stunts the roots of the plants so that they are not able to develop normally. Rotate crops and add lime to raise soil pH to 7.2..

Other Known Issues

 Cabbage is susceptible to a number of physiological disorders such as tipburn, black petiole, black speck that can be avoided with variety selection and cultural methods. 

Seed Saving Instructions

An insect pollinated biennial, Cabbage will cross with all members of Brassica oleracea. Dig healthy, solid heads in the fall very carefully and pack roots in damp sawdust. In spring, replant and lightly score an X through the top of the head. The seed stalk will emerge from the center of the head. Isolation distances of ˝ mile are necessary for purity, unless alternate day caging is used. Seedpods must reach maturity on the mother plant. When pods are dry and brown, they can be harvested and broken open. Black rot, black leg and black leaf spot are seedborne diseases. Hot water treatment can reduce transmission.
