From the year of 1760, there exist written documents describing the export of cabbage to Vienna. During the decades of cultivation of cabbage in Futog, a population was created that was different according to their quality properties from the others. Producers have beginned in each harvest year to keep only the specified plants for seeds.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:verdana, geneva, sans-serif;">The long-duration selection was responsible for the creation of the population called “Futoški kupus” (the Futog cabbage), which was important for the fresh consumption, and for souring,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:verdana, geneva, sans-serif;">as well.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family:verdana, geneva, sans-serif;">The creation of this population, of course, contributed to the convenient agroecological conditions and geographic location of the district of Futog.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> </head> <body> <h2><strong>Jersey Cabbage Seeds (Brassica oleracea longata)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 5 seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>The Jersey cabbage (Brassica oleracea longata, also known as Jersey kale or cow cabbage) and by a variety of local names including giant cabbage, long jacks, tree cabbage, and the French chour and chou à vacque. It is a variety of cabbage native to the Channel Islands that grows to a great height and was formerly commonly used there as livestock fodder and for making walking sticks.</p> <p>The 'Jersey cabbage' develops a long stalk, commonly reaching 6 to 10 feet (<strong>1.8 to 3.0 m</strong>) in height, and can grow as tall as 18 to 20 feet (<strong>5.5 to 6.1 m</strong>). Historically the stalks were made into walking sticks, of which 30,000 a year were being sold by the early 20th century, many for export. They were also used for fencing and as rafters. Much of the stalk is bare; the islanders stripped leaves to accentuate this effect and induce it to grow without twisting, varnished the stalk, and created a handle either by heat-treating and bending the root end or by planting at an angle to produce a naturally bent root.</p> <p>The lower leaves were fed to livestock, (one variety in Portugal was grown specifically for the purpose), and were reported of great value: The Farmer's Magazine stated in 1836 that five plants would support 100 sheep or 10 cows, and sheep fed them were rumored to produce silky wool up to 25 inches (64 cm) in length. The open cabbage at the top is comparatively small: "the size of the cabbages at the top was so infinitesimal that one seemed forced to the conviction that nature meant them to be stalked, not cabbages".</p> <p>The plant is now rarely grown in the Channel Islands, except for feeding rabbits. Although, it is still cultivated for walking sticks by Philip and Jacquelyn Johnson, who were shown on the BBC One series Countryfile in January 2010.</p> <p><strong>180 days.

<h2><strong>Futog Koolzaden</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Prijs per verpakking van 200 (1 g) zaden.</strong></span></h2> <p>Kool wordt verbouwd in Futog uit de tijd van de 18 eeuw, uit de tijd van de kroning van keizerin Maria Theresia. Vanaf het jaar 1760 bestaan ​​er schriftelijke documenten waarin de export van kool naar Wenen wordt beschreven. Tijdens de decennia van de teelt van kool in Futog, werd een populatie gecreëerd die op basis van hun kwaliteitseigenschappen verschilde van de andere. Producenten zijn in elk oogstjaar begonnen om alleen de gespecificeerde planten voor zaden te houden.</p> <p>De langdurige selectie was verantwoordelijk voor de vorming van de populatie genaamd “Futoški kupus” (de Futog-kool), die belangrijk was voor de verse consumptie en ook voor verzuring.</p> <p>De vorming van deze populatie heeft natuurlijk bijgedragen aan de gunstige agro-ecologische omstandigheden en geografische ligging van het district Futog. De geografische regio waar zowel de verse Futog-kool als de zure Futog-kool wordt geproduceerd, is de kadastrale gemeenschap Futog.</p> <p>De geografische regio</p> <p>Futog is de nederzetting in het meest vruchtbare deel van het Pannonische laagland, aan de linkerkust van de Donau in Servië. Het is gelegen in het midden van de loop van de rivier de Donau, op 1270 km. Het ligt ongeveer 10 km stroomopwaarts, aan de westkant van Novi Sad, de hoofdstad van de autonome provincie Vojvodina.</p> <p>Geografisch gebied</p> <p>Door de invloed van het specifieke geografische klimaat en de traditionele benaderingen die worden toegepast tijdens het kweken en verzuren, worden specifieke sensorische eigenschappen verkregen die de Futog-kool, hetzij vers of zuur, anders maken dan de andere gerelateerde monsters.</p><script src="//cdn.public.n1ed.com/G3OMDFLT/widgets.js"></script>

It has large fleshy glaucous collard-like leaves and abundant white flowers. The seeds come one each in globular pods.</p> <p><strong>Distribution</strong></p> <p>Very rare in Northern Ireland, recorded from Counties Down and Antrim and from a number of seaside counties of Ireland.</p> <p><strong>Culinary use</strong></p> <p>The plant is cultivated as a vegetable, related to the cabbage.</p> <p>Along the coast of England, where it is commonly found above high tide mark on shingle beaches, local people heaped loose shingle around the naturally occurring root crowns in springtime, thus blanching the emerging shoots. By the early eighteenth century, it had become established as a garden vegetable, but its height of popularity was the early nineteenth century when sea kale appeared in Thomas Jefferson's Garden Book of 1809. It was also served at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, when Prince Regent George IV of the United Kingdom (1762–1830) used it as a seaside retreat.</p> <p>The shoots are served like asparagus: steamed, with either a béchamel sauce or melted butter, salt and pepper. It is apt to get bruised or damaged in transport and should be eaten very soon after cutting, this may explain its subsequent decline in popularity. However, given a rich, deep and sandy soil, it is easy to propagate and grow on from root cuttings available from specialist nurseries. Blanching may be achieved by covering it with opaque material or using a deep, loose and dry mulch.</p> <p><strong>As an ornamental plant</strong></p> <p>As an ornamental garden plant, C. maritima has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.</p> </div><script src="//cdn.public.n1ed.com/G3OMDFLT/widgets.js"></script>

<h2 class=""><strong>Broccoli Corvet Seeds (Brassicaceae Brassica oleracea)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 200 seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>Delicious, 18 to 28", bluish-green close-beaded heads are 3 to 6". Bears until frost, with many side shoots. Brought with Italian immigrants in the late 1880s. Good for home or market, freezing and canning. Corvet which matures in about 60 days after transplanting. It gives you the best of both worlds – the primary head is large and firm, but after its removal there is a succession of secondary spears.</p> <p>Seed Saving</p> <p>Broccoli usually self-incompatible and must be cross-pollinated by insects. This means there must be a number of plants flowering at the same time. All of the Brassica oleracea crops are the same species and will cross with each other. To maintain purity you have to ensure that only one type flowers at once. The alternative is to isolate them, either by distance (1000 yards for different varieties, 1500 yards for different crops), or by caging them (don't forget they need insects for pollination). Save the seed from at least 5 plants to maintain some genetic diversity.</p> <p>Seed is produced in long pods and should be gathered when the older bottom pods first start to split open. Watch them carefully as they shatter easily when they are fully ripe. Cut the seedpod bearing stems and dry them in a warm place (I put small quantities in a paper grocery bag so I don't lose any seeds). The large seeds are easily handled and cleaned. Of course, it is essential that they are thoroughly dry before storage.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Seed Viability in Years: 3-4 years</p><script src="//cdn.public.n1ed.com/G3OMDFLT/widgets.js"></script>
