Coolwrap is a new type of cabbage developed by Bejo Seeds together with the growers Gertjan and Robert Kos. It is now available organically grown.
Coolwrap is a somewhat flat cabbage with a mild taste and a bite that reminds you of iceberg lettuce. Because it’s flatter than a ‘normal’ cabbage it’s easy to make wraps with the leaves – hence the name. It’s been on the market conventionally grown for some time (see the picture below of conventional Coolwrap at the Dekamarkt, a Dutch supermarket chain). Coolwrap is now available organically grown by the growers Gertjan and Robert Kos from Oudkarspel, about an hour’s drive North of Amsterdam.
There’s alot of interest from organic box scheme companies for the organically grown Coolwrap. We’re exporting them to Denmark at the moment.
