Cabbage - Green Savoy
Savoy cabbage is, you may be surprised to learn, a variety of white-headed cabbage. The spectacular, wrinkled surface of the leaves is a striking characteristic. It sports a more distinctive taste and texture than its common cousin, which makes it very popular. Delicious and healthy, it deserves an invitation to your vegetable garden.
Cabbage ‘Vertus’ produces rounded heads of finely blistered, dark green ruffled leaves that have a sweet, subtle flavour compared to other savoy cabbages.
This mid-late, frost hardy winter variety produces cabbages that have the ability to withstand even severe cold weather.
Cabbage is another member of the Brassica family that is full of nutrients, including vitamins A, B1, B2, and C, as well as various antioxidants. Eating lots of cabbage may also protect the eyes from macular degeneration. To preserve its vitamins and mineral content, do not overcook cabbage. Store cut cabbage in the refrigerator in a plastic bag with holes in it and use as soon as possible.
