White Cabbage 'Filderkraut'


Witte kool Filderkraut

White cabbage Filderkraut is the tastiest one of the white cabbages. This variety has a smooth and somewhat sweeter taste in comparison to other varieties and it can be used for sauerkraut as well. The somewhat pointed cabbage is formed slightly later and can become a very big crop. Filderkraut is a trustworthy variety and is easy to grow. It should be grown on a nutritious and moist soil, although it demands less from the soil than other head cabbages. When winter comes, you should store it at a frost-free cold spot, with the roots intact in a container filled with sand. Another option is to hang them in your basement. Under (flat) glass is possible as well, although you have to ventilate it sufficiently and cover it during frost. If needed, you could peal off the bad leaves.
