55 Days to Maturity. The Perfect Mini-Cabbage with a Sweet-Crunchy Flavor. Gonzales was the earliest to make dense, uniform, sweetly spicy mini heads from 4-6" in diameter, depending on spacing. No more wasted cabbage from those giant heads that look so great yet can't be eaten up fast enough! Gonzales gives you just what you need for two generous side servings or a big salad, stir-fry. Ready to eat in less than 2 months (one-third to one-half the time of those full-sized heads!), Gonzales weighs in at about a pound and measures 6 inches in diameter -- about the size of a softball. The flavor is delectable -- a combination of super-crunchy and sweet, with a density and a rich bite that tastes for all the world as if it came from a slow-growing, full-sized cabbage. Gonzales loses nothing in maturing so quickly -- and it gains a bit of tender fresh flavor.
Vegetable Garden – Tips on Growing Cabbage from Seeds

| Rotation considerations for China Pacifiko Yr Cabbage Seeds: |
|Like most vegetables, cabbage needs at least 6 hours of full sun each day; more is better. It also needs fertile, well-drained, moist soil with plenty of rich organic matter. The soil pH should be between 6.5 and 6.8 for optimum growth and to discourage club root disease.|
For spring crops, sow the seeds indoors about 5 weeks before last anticipated frost, using your Bio Dome or seed flats. If using the Bio Dome, just drop the seeds into the pre-drilled holes; if using flats, cover them with at least 4 times their thickness. Germinate them at 70 to 75 degrees F; they will sprout in about 10 to 14 days, and are ready to transplant when they have at least 2 sets of true leaves. Space Gonzales seedlings about 8 inches apart in the garden.
For fall crops, sow the seeds directly into the garden in midsummer. In warm climates, Gonzales will grow happily into winter, the frost only improving its flavor! Sow in early fall for winter crops. In most climates, sowing seeds successively every 2 or 3 weeks will give you a nice long season for this quick-to-finish mini.
