Golden Acre is an excellent extra early variety ball head cabbage.

Ideal for confined areas, it can be grown at 30cm spacings and give excellent small heads of first rate quality and flavour.
The heads are tightly folded, solid, 12 to 18cm (5 to 7 in) in diameter, round, grey-green in colour and weigh three to five pounds. Matures in 64 days. It is not a long standing variety but is Yellows resistant
Germination: Start early types 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date, or as soon as ground can be worked.

Place in a sunny spot or under lights with temperatures between 60° and 70°F, and keep the soil uniformly moist.
