This variety of cabbage has an excellent internal structure which can be made into the tastiest white coleslaw ever, or can be shredded raw into winter salads. Cabbage attraction has a vigorous plant habit so can be grown in all soil types. The good resistance to early frost damage allows for an extended cutting season into early winter.
