Growing Cole Crops
Cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and kale make up a group of cool season vegetables
known as cole crops. The word “cole” means stem and has nothing to do with the fact that these
vegetables are tolerant to “cold.”
Cole crops are hardy and grow best in the spring and fall. However, growers must take care to avoid
extended periods of low temperature before or after transplanting.
