The well-known gardening writer, Peter Seabrook, was so impressed by the taste of the super-sweet, crisp cabbage Cabbice F1, that he decided to introduce it to Jamie Oliver at his Fifteen Restaurant in London. Jamie and his staff loved the superb taste of the cabbage and decided to include it on their menu.
Cabbice F1 is a white cabbage with a very mild and sweet taste. It has thick, crunchy leaves, which makes it ideal for shredding and eating raw in salads. The variety can be sown from late winter to early summer. In the UK, Cabbice F1 is sold by Johnsons Seeds and Mr. Fothergills Seeds Ltd.
Cabbice F1 will also be presented at the Chelsea flower show, which takes place from 24th-28th May 2016. During the show, Jamie will be cooking with Cabbice F1 and giving out free samples of his dishes. This is in conjunction with a school project where children learn how to grow vegetables from seeds.
