Flat pole cabbage is a British heirloom cabbage that used to be used as a
fodder crop. There are stories of farmers planting up to a million plants
that were harvested by hand. When silage and mechanization became popular,
the flat pole cabbage virtually dissapeared. Cabbages could weigh up to 40
lbs. Any other information on this cabbage would be appreciated. Even better
would be a source of seed. A Google search yielded little useful
information. I would like to grow this heirloom in Eastern Ontario.
Maybe Seeds of Diversity (the Canadian seed savers
organization) would know something about it.
If not, maybe the Seed Savers Exchange (US equivalent of
Seeds of Diversity) might have some information on it.
