Cabbage

The cabbage we are familiar with was developed in the 16th Century in Northern Europe. The head forming cabbages were slowly selected from a loose leafed, savoy type cabbage that originated several thousand years ago in the Mid East, spreading through trade into Asia and Europe at roughly the same pace.

Cabbage does best as an early Spring or a Fall crop, as it needs cooler weather to properly develop the heads. The early maturing varieties are best planted early Spring for an early Summer crop, and the late varieties planted in late Summer for a Fall crop.
