Copenhagen Market (1909)

First introduced by Hjalmar Hartmann & Co. of Copenhagen, Denmark in 1909. W. Atlee Burpee then introduced Copenhagen Market to the US in 1911. This heirloom cabbage has been a popular cabbage since its introduction all those years ago. It was a favorite of my grandmother’s and she always grew it each year. The solid round green heads weigh 4-5 lbs and are resistant to splitting. It is great raw, cooked or for making sauerkraut. This variety also stores well and is an early cabbage.

aq head of heirloom cabbage


An extremely rare and historical cabbage that I have been trying to locate for years! I am finally able to offer this excellent variety to my customers. It appeared as early as 1864 in American seed catalogues and was documented as grown at the Red River Settlement in Manitoba. It apparently was developed from the Brunswick cabbage that was widely grown in the 1700’s. The heads of Winningstadt are pointed and very large and dense; this is one of the reasons it was used extensively for making sauerkraut. The flavor is outstanding and it is also excellent as a salad cabbage. EXTREMELY RARE. (80-90 days from transplant)
