Numerous types of cabbages were planted in Thomas Jefferson's gardens throughout his lifetime, including French, Milan, Savoy, Ox-heart, Roman, Scotch, Sugarloaf, York, and Winter. Early Jersey Wakefield forms a compact, somewhat conical head up to 15" long and 7" wide with glaucous-green leaves. First grown in New Jersey in 1840, it is a fine early-heading variety with a sweet flavor and was popular in 19th-century markets.

Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting. Move to cell-packs once they have several true leaves. Harden off and transplant just before the last frost date to well-drained, fertile soil. Good frost resistance. Approximately 80-85 seeds per packet.
