Cabbage is a good source of beta-carotene, vitamin C and fiber. Studies suggest that it, as well as other cruciferous vegetables, may reduce the risk of some cancers, especially those in the colorectal group. Purple cabbage also contains anthocyanins, which in other vegetables have been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties.
Planting/Growing Tips: Start in pulp pots that go directly in the ground for minimal transplant shock. Harvesting: Harvest heads as soon as they are well developed, firm, and solid when squeezed. Cut off heads at base with a sharp knife. Cabbages left in the ground beyond maturity are more subject to disease and splitting.
