cabbage, home gardens, vegetable
Cabbage, Brassica oleracea var. capitata, is probably the most ancient of vegetables. Cabbage belongs to one of the oldest but also one of the largest vegetable families. Head-type cabbage was first described in 1536. The popularity of the vegetable grew as colonists brought cabbage seed with them from Europe.
