Went out to cut some Cabbage to put up some kraut and dead center of the patch spotted this. Only one bothered no tracks and nothing else touched. Never seen this before


What do ya think? :eek:

I'd say it simply burst open. They will so that. Some varieties are worse than others. The inside of the head grows and grows and it will pop open. Nothing wrong with it. Cut away the wilted part and eat the rest. You gotta eat more cabbage so this doesn't happen to other heads :!: :lol:

Never had this happen before. This was actually a small head. Do you think the fact it had been a little dry and then we got some rain and it turned cool again could have anything to do with it?

Strange. Haven't seen that before. Ours are still much smaller than that.

Yep! What variety is it. Early Jersey Wakefield is bad about bursting open here.

Mike I say Jim is right it just bursted open . it is probably the weather doing it , but if you want it to stop you going to have to lay off Ron :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: or keep it up and you won't have to grade it up into kraut. :lol: :lol:

Dry followed by rain can split a lot of veggies. tomatoes, cantaloupe, even Watermelons and pumpkins if it's bad enough.
