Golden Acre (Primo) Cabbage
A classic early cabbage from 1928. Even with new hybrids taking over the cabbage market, Golden Acre holds its own because of its reliable early crops of tasty spring-to-summer cabbages. A manageable size both in the kitchen and in the garden plot. Grey-green heads, some with a faint reddish tint in the outer leaves, average 3–5 lb. Short stems with sparse wrapper leaves and medium-sized core keep plants compact. Not long standing--plant a later cabbage for winter use. These summer cabbages are much used in hot climates as an alternative to lettuce when the heat turns lettuce bitter and wilty. 80 seeds
Bountiful Gardens carried an early cabbage from the UK called Primo for years, and it had a devoted following. Two major seed companies in the UK list "Golden Acre Primo" as a variety, leading me to believe that either Primo is a selection of Golden Acre or they are synonyms.
