Medium-late variety; yields large, firm heads weighing up to 5 kg. Ruhm von Enkhuizen 2 is a rapid-growth white cabbage that keeps well.
Harvest anytime before the first frost. Store cool, but keep free of frost. Rotate crop each year!
Cabbage prefers ordinary soil that is deep and calcareous. Water abundantly (especially while the heads are forming) and fertilize several times.
Sow thin. Plant cabbage seedlings deep in the soil allowing only the cotyledons to stick out. Add stability by hilling up around the seedlings. Cover with foil in order to harvest 1-2 weeks early.
This variety is ideal for sauerkraut or coleslaw.
