CABBAGE VARIETY TRIALS AT HASTINGS, FLORIDA 1969-70
J. R. Shumaker, Asst. Horticulturist

METHODS AND CONDITIONS:

Twenty-five cabbage varieties were evaluated for fresh market adaptability
to the Hastings area during the 1969-70 growing season (Table 1). Hot-
water treated seed of each variety was sown October 14th and plants were
transplanted December 3rd. Recommended area cultural and management
practices were followed. Harvesting began on March 27th and was conducted
as maturity demanded until conclusion on May 4th. Unfavorable weather
conditions and diseases) incidence prevailed during most of this cabbage
season. When compared to data collected at Hastings in the late winter
and spring of 1968 and of 1969, maturity of varieties in these trials (days
from transplant to first harvest) was delayed over a month. This was attributed
to rains, totalling 30.7 inches, and a persistently cold season. Watery soft
rot, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, caused severe to moderate reductions in stand.
Black rot, Xanthomonas campestris, which was widespread late in the growing
season severely reduced quality of late maturing varieties,

RESULTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS:

Maturity and yield results of the variety trial are summarized in Table 1.
For comparison the most popular varieties grown at Hastings are Market Prize,
King Cole, and Market Topper. In addition to these, several other varieties
demonstrated a high degree of fresh market adaptability to the area. They
are recommended for trial in commercial plantings and are as follows:

Early maturity

Rounded to semi-round heads
Kleen Cut, Harvester Queen, Pack Rite, and Head Start

Medium to medium-late maturity

Rounded to semi-round heads
Superette, Green Boy, and Little Rock

Semi-flat to flattened heads
Tokyo Pride No. 21, Saf-Gard, and Rio Verde
