Rare Cabbage Setting Seeds in the Sub-tropics

Mon, 08/08/2011 – Jude Fanton

Film clip we made on how an African cabbage, Brassica carinata, produces seeds in our gardens at 28° south in Byron Bay, Australia. It is a different species to the common cabbage, Brassica oleracea, and grows to two metres, producing enough leaves to warrant the varietal name of “Women Meet and Gossip”. See more below on saving seeds of common cabbage extracted from The Seed Savers’ Handbook.
