Cabbage Glory: time-tested

Cabbage is a vegetable, well known for a long time. It turns out that even Pythagoras himself was engaged in its selection. What can we say about our days, when science has stepped far forward in the creation of hybrids with improved characteristics. Nevertheless, there are varieties of cabbage, which for several decades have enjoyed well-deserved fame. One of them is called Glory.

Cabbage Glory and its varieties

The traditional type of cabbage is white cabbage, has long been considered a Russian national product, although it is a vegetable from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Cabbage is so unpretentious that even old domestic varieties compete with new hybrids and are still enjoying unprecedented success. One of them is the famous Slava variety, which has 2 varieties, no less popular than the famous "namesake". We are talking about the Glory 1305 and the Glory of the Gribovsky 231.

Cabbage Glory is a very old variety, but it is still respected.

Both varieties have a long history, because the year of inclusion in the State Register is back in 1940. These varieties are allowed to be grown in all regions of Russia. The destination is open ground, so both types of cabbage are welcome guests in the garden in private farms and on farm fields. High taste quality of both varieties and their universal use in cooking are noted. But the rest of the characteristics vary.

Glory 1305

Belongs to mid-ripening varieties, from the period of mass seedlings to the onset of technical ripeness passes from 101 to 132 days. Friendly ripening is noted. The raised leaf outlet. The leaves are medium, rounded, with a pronounced wavy edge, green or grayish-green. The surface is medium-wrinkled, covered with a weak or medium-intense wax coating. A round or flat-round firm head is medium in size and weighs from 2 to 4.5 kg. The inner poker is of medium length, the outer one is short. Productivity 570 - 930 kg / ha. The maximum yield is 1250 kg / ha. The variety is resistant to mucosal bacteriosis.

Glory Gribovsky 231

Mid-season, but technical ripeness occurs 2 weeks earlier than that of Slava 1305. The final formation of the head comes on 100 - 110 days. A medium-sized compact and raised leaf rosette hides a small but strong round-headed head. Its mass is 2.2 - 4.5 kg. The leaves are rounded, medium in size with a slightly wavy edge. Painted in green or dark green. The surface of the plate is small wrinkled, covered with medium intensity wax coating. Inner poker of medium length. The commodity productivity indicator of 658 - 891 kg / ha. The maximum recorded yield of 1026 c / ha. The output of marketable products is great - 91 - 97%. The variety is unpretentious to the soil.

Appearance of the Slava variety

Looks like cabbage. Glory is attractive. The raised leaf outlet. The leaves are medium sized, light green, covered with a slight waxy coating. The surface of small wrinkles, nutrient veins are well defined. The head is round (average diameter 25 cm), slightly flattened, dense. The cut has a white color. The outer stoker is shorter than the inner one. Weight ranges from 2.5 to 4.5 kg. If you believe the sources, sometimes there are 6 - 7 pound champions.

Cabbage Glory has a very attractive appearance and excellent taste.


Any variety differs from others in a set of characteristics. In the variety Slava it is as follows:

  • the variety belongs to mid-season species - from the seed germination to the technical ripeness of the head, 100 to 130 days pass;
  • shows high productivity - 10 to 12 kg of products are harvested from 1 m2;
  • well tolerates displacement over long distances, which makes Glory profitable for selling vegetables. But at the same time, the keeping performance is average - up to 3 months (maximum until January);
  • It has excellent taste. Juicy, crisp cabbage - a great ingredient in vitamin salad;
  • in cooking it is used as a universal product. But according to the hostesses, Glory is the best grade for pickling.

Advantages and disadvantages

White cabbage Slava fully justifies its proud name, because it has a lot of advantages:

  • resistant to temperature extremes - cold and heat resistant;
  • Despite the genetically embedded love of moisture, it is able to tolerate dry periods;
  • has good immunity, highly resistant to mucosal bacteriosis;
  • due to its high sugar content (up to 10%) it has an excellent taste;
  • heads of cabbage do not crack;
  • has excellent commercial qualities and appearance;
  • the plant is not prone to a large formation of peduncles.

But, unfortunately, there are also disadvantages. However, they appear with short care:

  • loose head is formed with a lack of light and overfeeding with mineral fertilizers;
  • in case of non-observance of the rules of agricultural technology, Glory can be affected by cabbage keel, vascular bacteriosis and undergoes fusarium wilt.

Features of planting and growing

Cabbage planting Slava is carried out by two traditional methods - seedling and seed. We will consider each of them separately.

Seedling method

This method is popular, despite the fact that it is time-consuming. Mainly grow cabbage through seedlings gardeners in the regions of risky farming try, but do not neglect it in the southern regions.

Seedling method, in the opinion of many gardeners, is more reliable. It allows you to:

  • save seed material;
  • receive an early and guaranteed harvest;
  • do not thin out seedlings.

Before planting, be sure to sort the seeds. Do not spare it and leave only large ones, from the little things there will still be no sense. The next step is seed preparation.

  1. For 15 to 20 minutes, the seed is soaked in hot water (approximately 50 ° C), then for 1 to 2 minutes it is lowered into cold water. This procedure will disinfect the seeds.
  2. The next 12 hours, the seeds should be held in a nutrient solution. It is prepared from 1 liter of water and 1 g of potassium humate. After washing under running water, the seed material is dried to a state of flowability.
  3. For hardening, the processed seeds are placed for a day in the refrigerator, on the lowest shelf, where the temperature is within 2 ° C.

Sort cabbage seeds before planting, leaving the largest

All procedures with seeds are easy to do if you place them in a special bag made of cotton or gauze. Personally, in such cases I use a gift bag made of organza on which there is no print.

The time for planting Glory seeds for seedlings is the first of April. Choose a more accurate date based on the weather conditions in your area. For example, in the south you can sow seeds from March 25. Seedlings should be planted in a permanent place at the age of 30 days, if she has 4 to 5 leaves.

What you need to grow seedlings at home

Cabbage Slava does not really like picking, so it is advisable to prepare separate containers for growing seedlings. Peat tablets are the best option to stay on - there is no need to mess around with the soil mixture (but the tablets dry quickly, this should be taken into account).

If you are not going to dive, then the seeds of cabbage are best sown in peat tablets

Although picking has its advantages. It is necessary if seedlings already need to be planted in the ground, and weather conditions do not allow this. The cabbage seedlings that have undergone the picking procedure slow down growth, become more squat, with a strong stalk.

The soil mixture for seedlings needs loose, nutritious, well-permeable air and water. If you decide to take the land from the garden beds, then you run the risk of getting weak and sick seedlings, since in this soil the amount of nutrients decreases, and pathogens accumulate. For sowing seeds, try to prepare a mixture consisting of turf soil and rotted humus, taken in equal proportions. To add looseness, add sand (but not fine). A good ingredient is wood ash, which will be an excellent prevention of the black leg.

It is advisable to disinfect the earth mixture in any way possible - fry it in an oven or spill it with a weak solution of potassium permanganate. After this, the soil can be filled in prepared containers - boxes for seedlings, individual cups, peat pots.

To disinfect the soil mixture, it is enough to spill it with a weak solution of potassium permanganate

  1. Moisten the earth mixture in drawers. Make grooves with a depth of no more than 2 cm. Seeds are laid out every 1.5 - 2 cm. The distance between the grooves is 4 cm. Sprinkle a thin layer of soil on top.
  2. If you prepared a separate container, then sow 2 to 3 seeds in it, shallowly planting them in the soil.
  3. Place the seed container in a well-lit place. To maintain the desired germination temperature of 18 - 20 ° C, cover the container with glass or a transparent film. Do not forget to ventilate so that condensation does not collect, which can provoke excessive humidity.

To maintain the temperature necessary for seed germination, put a transparent bag on the container

Growing seedlings in a greenhouse

The greenhouse is a great opportunity to unload window sills. The constant temperature allows you to grow seedlings in comfortable conditions.

Treated seeds are sown at the same time as for home cultivation. The land is prepared in advance, preferably in the fall. Be sure to remove all plant debris - in a greenhouse, diseases develop in them that become the main threat to seedlings. For digging, add rotted manure (3 buckets per 1 m²) and fertilizers containing nutrients necessary for cabbage:

  • nitrogen;
  • potassium;
  • phosphorus;
  • magnesium.

In a greenhouse, it is important to maintain normal not only temperature but also humidity. With its increase, seedlings are often bent, but the most dangerous for tender plants is fungal infections, which develop very quickly in warmth and humidity. To avoid this trouble, aerate the shelter in the daytime on the leeward side and observe the watering regime.

Greenhouse - a great place to grow cabbage seedlings

Seedling Care

Processed cabbage seeds germinate very quickly. Literally after 3 to 4 days, the first shoots appear, but do not be alarmed if they did not sprout during this time. Sometimes seeds can sit in the ground for a whole week. In order for the plants to develop strong and healthy, they need a special care regimen.

  1. Moving the seedling container to a cooler place will help to avoid excessive stretching of the seedlings. The temperature during the day should not exceed 16 ° C, and at night - 8 - 10 ° C. In such conditions, keep the seedlings for a week.
  2. If you grow seedlings in a common container, then pick, carry out when the seedlings are 10-14 days old (phase of expanded cotyledons and first leaf). Some sources indicate that during the procedure, the tip of the root should be pinched. But experienced gardeners do not. After the procedure, keep the seedlings for 3 days in comfortable conditions - a bright room with a temperature of up to 18 ° C. Gradually, bring the indicators to 13 - 14 ° C during the day and 10 - 12 ° C at night.
  3. If seedlings develop in separate cups, then after the appearance of 2 - 3 true leaves, select the strongest seedling. Pinch the rest under the root.

    For further cultivation, you need to leave the strongest seedling

  4. For seedlings, maximum lighting is important for growth. If there is not enough light, the seedlings are pulled into a string. To avoid this, additional illumination with a fluorescent lamp for 12 hours will help.
  5. Equally important is the normal moisture content of the substrate. Before seedlings appear, carry out humidification from the spray gun. When the seedlings appeared - spill between the grooves so that water does not fall on the seedlings. The soil should be moderately moist. If you have flooded the soil too much, then dry sand will help you, which must be scattered between the grooves. Overdrying or waterlogging will ruin the tender shoots. If you stand the seedlings in a cool place, then you can water 1 time in 5 to 7 days.
  6. Start feeding seedlings at the age of a week or 10 days. To do this, use organic matter or a solution of ammonium nitrate, granular superphosphate (20 g each) and potassium chloride (5 - 10 g) per bucket of water. After 10 - 12 days, spend the second top dressing, after 2 weeks or 20 days - the third.

Planting seedlings in the ground

1.5 to 2 weeks before planting, seedlings must be hardened. Keeping seedlings at low temperatures prepares them for open ground conditions, but this is not enough. Begin by airing the room, then take the seedlings out into the air. Do it the first time in the afternoon, preferably on a sunny day. Increase your time on the street.

Ready for new conditions seedlings should be strong, 15 cm high and have 5 - 6 leaves. At least 2 hours before transplanting, young plants need to be well watered so that the earthen clod holds on tight.

Hardened seedlings with 5 to 6 leaves are ready for transplanting to an open garden.

Due to its good cold resistance, Glory can be planted in open ground when the daytime temperature stably stays within 8 - 10 ° С. In order not to thicken the landing, you should adhere to the following scheme:

  • between plants - 50 - 60 cm;
  • between rows - 60 cm.

In cold regions, seedlings are best planted first under cover material.

Prepare the soil in advance. The whole process is the same as when growing in a greenhouse.

  1. Schedule rows in due time using pegs and rope. At a specified distance from each other, dig holes that will freely accommodate the root system of seedlings.
  2. Pour 1 teaspoon into each hole. urea and 2 tbsp. l superphosphate. Thoroughly mix the fertilizer with the ground.
  3. Then pour enough water to make a creamy mass in the recess. In it and plant young cabbage. Press the landing lightly with your hand to tighten.
  4. Then sprinkle the hole with dry soil to prevent quick drying of the soil.

While the seedlings take root, watering is often carried out - after 2 to 3 days.

Growing in the seedless way

This method is most often practiced in the southern regions. The sowing campaign is carried out from mid-April to May. The main thing is that during this period the air temperature does not fall below 4 - 6 ° C. Ideally, the temperature should be within 10 ° C. If weather forecasters warn of possible cooling, cover the beds with agrofibre seeds.

Choose a well-lit area for sowing seeds and further cultivating the Slava variety, as cabbage is a light-loving young lady. Even the slightest shading is undesirable. To develop a full-fledged crop, cabbage should receive lighting for 13 hours. Of the soils, loam is preferred, which contains a large proportion of humus.

Good lighting is important for cabbage

It is very important that the soil has a neutral acidity. Otherwise, cabbage will hurt and yield will be minimal. To reduce acidity, you can use wood ash, which also fertilizes the soil.

Choose the areas where before this grew:

  • dahlias;
  • lawn grass;
  • potatoes;
  • legumes;
  • cucumbers
  • Tomatoes

It is undesirable to plant cabbage in the same place twice. The soil should rest from this crop for at least 3 years. To maintain such conditions in small areas is problematic, therefore it is very useful to practice joint planting or to plant Glory immediately after harvesting the first greens - lettuce, green onions.

They dig the soil in the fall, introducing the required nutrients. Digging the ground is a must! In clogged, unsaturated soil, heads of cabbage will not develop properly.

Step-by-step landing process

  1. Align the site with a rake, smash the clods of earth.
  2. Mark the beds with a rope and pegs driven along the edges. Dig a shallow groove with your hoe. Their depth should not exceed 2 cm.
  3. Spill the grooves with warm water.
  4. If the seeds have been presoaked and slightly hatching, lay them every 50-60 cm.
  5. Sow dry seeds denser, given the fact that not all of them will germinate. Then thinning should be carried out, removing the weakest plants from the garden.
  6. Sprinkle the planted seeds on top with dry earth and gently press with your palm.

I do not always throw away weak plants; I give them a second chance. Before thinning, I water the garden well, then dig a frail seedling and plant it in a separate container. I return the already-grown plant to the garden. I can’t say that I save all the plants in this way, but many of them eventually rejoice with the crop.

Further care

Cabbage Glory, like all members of the family, is very hygrophilous. Therefore, the soil on the beds should always be moderately moist. Frequency of watering in different regions is often different. Before the next hydration usually takes 8 to 10 days. But atmospheric precipitation should be taken into account, because if you water it after rain, then oxygen will cease to flow to the roots due to waterlogging. In arid regions, on the contrary, when watering is insufficient, the plant withers, if the head of cabbage grows, the vegetable will not be juicy, but rather dry.

Cabbage loves moisture, but does not tolerate waterlogging and drought

Water the cabbage with water, the temperature of which is not lower than that of air. Предпочтительна вечерняя процедура, если полить овощ в жару, влага ещё больше разогреет почву, и корни получат паровой ожог. Если поливаете утром, то по возможности делайте это за несколько часов до наступления жары.

Для среднеспелых сортов, к которым относится капуста Слава, особенно важен полив в период массового нарастания листьев и формирования кочана. Норма расхода воды на 1м² – 15 – 20 л.

Подкармливают всходы таким же образом, как и рассаду. В период формирования кочана полезен раствор коровяка — 1 л на ведро воды, в него можно добавить 50 г золы. Количество полученной смеси хватит на 5 – 6 кустиков. Этим же раствором можно полить капусту через 3 – 4 недели. Подкормку нужно вносить только в хорошо увлажнённую почву.

Не забывайте и о таких полезных правилах по уходу за овощем как рыхление междурядий, борьба с травой и мульчирование посадок.

Diseases and Pests

Любую проблему легче предотвратить, чем потом бороться с ней. Поэтому профилактика — залог достойного урожая.

От вредителей капусту спасают сильно пахнущие растения. Высаженные по краям грядки и в её середине бархатцы или петунья не только украсят посадку, но и отпугнут капустную муху, совку, бабочку белянку. Слизни очень боятся табачной пыли — её можно рассыпать на земле вокруг растений.

Бархатцы не только украшают капусту, но и защищают её от вредителей

Сорт Слава имеет неплохой иммунитет, но загущенные посадки, чрезмерный полив и излишняя подкормка могут сыграть против правил. И тогда болезни не заставят себя ждать. Чтобы этого не случилось, припудривание золой проведите ещё на стадии рассады. А перед высадкой на грядку нужно обработать растения 1% раствором бордоской жидкости.

Если капуста всё же заболела, то собирайте и уничтожайте поражённые листья, а после сбора урожая убирайте с грядки капустные остатки. В качестве борьбы с недугом используйте следующие препараты:

  • от чёрной ножки — Бактофит, Планриз, Фитофлавин;
  • от корневой гнили — Ризоплан;
  • от ложной мучнистой росы — Топаз;
  • от сосудистого бактериоза — Планриз, Триходермин.

Harvesting and storage

Технической спелости овощ достигает к концу июля. За 2 недели до сбора урожая капусты Слава прекратите полив, чтобы не спровоцировать растрескивание кочанов. Сбор урожая на больших участках может растянуться на пару недель.

Крепкий кочан срезают острым ножом и оставляют в тени просохнуть. Затем тщательно осматривают и удаляют повреждённые листья. Отсортированные целые и крепкие кочаны складывают невысокой пирамидой на деревянной полке или укладывают в ящики кочерыжкой вверх в месте для хранения. Для этой цели прекрасно подходит сухой подвал с хорошей вентиляцией. Оптимальные показатели температуры (0°С) и влажности (90%) позволяют урожаю храниться до середины зимы. В деревнях до сих пор распространён способ хранения в подвешенном состоянии. Для этого капусту выкапывают вместе с корнем и подвешивают за кочерыгу.

Сорт Слава необыкновенно хорош именно в квашеном виде. Поэтому, если количество капусты позволяет, заквасьте часть урожая и вы получите зимой полезный для здоровья продукт.

Как бы вы ни хранили капусту, её следует периодически проверять, удаляя подгнившие листья

Отзывы о капусте Слава

А Слава у меня каждый год в обязательном порядке. На засолку… только СЛАВА!


Я капусту «Слава» посеяла 20 мая с целью собрать ее в октябре и засолить. В прошлом году получилось — собирала в октябре нормальную капусту, а в этом году, думаю, ничего не соберу, капуста вся в дырочку, хотя обрабатывала нещадно весь сезон. Только 2 кочана стоят чистые, которые в зарослях укропа все лето стояли.


У меня в этом году очень хорошая капуста выросла. Слава и Подарок. Что интересно, гусениц не было, хотя никакой химии я не применяю вообще, а прошлые годы всю сжирали — не успевала собирать их.


У меня сугубо потребительский вопрос: решили взять пару кочанов капусты на засолку-закваску. Полюбился сорт Слава. Но вот незадача — редко можно встретить его в продаже в магазинах и рынках Краснодара

For myself, I decided on the skeleton of the varieties; from the early ones I plant 10-15 Start startles. From the middle, the basis is the tested and well-cultivated Slava variety, planted also such varieties as Incomparable, Pobeda, Pudovaya; the latter did not reach the pond, but for 10 kg. exceeded. Of the late varieties, and which are still being stored, I plant Kharkov, Snegurochka, Everest.

Cabbage Slava is perhaps the most deserved variety in Russia - unpretentious, easily grown in seedlings and seeds, gives excellent crops. For these characteristics, Glory is still respected and cultivated. Another advantage of the variety is its wonderful taste. And according to the hostesses, Glory is the undoubted leader among the varieties of cabbage for pickling.
