Holsteiner Platter, organic seeds
Brassica oleracea var. capitata alba
Certainly suits its name. The head is flattened round, often 30 cm in diameter. The whole plant is large with sturdy outer leaves. Holsteiner is chiefly a white cabbage for making sauerkraut and eating fresh with its fine flavour and looser head and not for storage. A portion contains about 100 seeds.
