Popular world wide, especially in Asia, cabbage is a leafy vegetable in the broccoli and cauliflower family of “brassicas”, and comes in many varieties and colors, from deep red to dark purple and from white to jade green. Cabbage was probably a wild plant with thick leaves that helped retain water and protected the plant from cold, and was domesticated around 4,000 BC in North China, then spread by way of the Celts to western Europe. Ancient Romans considered cabbage a luxury and valued its medicinal properties for healing gout and headaches.

Savoy cabbage has a sweeter, more delicate flavor, while Asian Pak Choi has a crisper and milder flavor than the more common red and green cabbage. Red cabbage adds a colorful touch to salads or as a side dish, but be careful, as it will leach color if cooked with other vegetables.

This nutritious vegetable contains almost no fat, but is high in fiber, vitamins A, B-6, folate, C & K and magnesium, thiamin, riboflavin, and protein, although purple cabbage has a higher content of vitamin C, while the savoy is a better source for Vitamin A, calcium, iron and potassium. Cabbage is also rich in powerful antioxidants which reduce risk of cancer and help prevent heart disease, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, improve the skin and strengthen bones, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, boost the immune system and aids digestion.

Cabbage is best known served as coleslaw, German red cabbage and sauerkraut, and with Irish corned beef, but this versatile vegetable can also be boiled or roasted, stuffed with hamburger, used in cabbage rolls, chow mein and soups, or chopped raw into salads.

Generally a cooler weather plant, place your St. Clare Heirloom cabbage seeds in the ground about 6 to 8 weeks before the last spring frost, but be sure to check the planting instructions on the package, which can vary, depending on the variety.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
