Cabbages grow during the winter and are rich in vitamins C,A and B. They are also a great source of fibre. An excellent plant for the allotment, they do not grow that well in containers. We are seeing caggabes grown in the garden border, and certain types do look great.
Cabbages prefer a cool climate, plant cabbages in spring for summer / autumn harvesting and autumn for a winter / spring harvesting.
Cabbages need to be rotated, plant in different beds each year. Cabbages can be grown from seeds or seedlings. Like most vegetable a humus rich well drained soil is best. Keep moist.
- Green Cabbage is the most important ingredient of coleslaw.
- Savoy Cabbage is the cabbage used in Italian cooking, more tender and sweeter than the green cabbage.
- Red Cabbage is good for stir fry, or salad.
- Chinese Cabbage or Napa Cabbage is used in soups, stir fry and eaten raw in salads. Chinese Cabbages includes Wong Bok and Michihili.
