He is less lovely than the Rose;
Or does he squat in smug content,
A source of noble nourishment;
Or if he pities for her sins
The Rose who has no vitamins;
Or if the one thing his green heart knows
That self-same fire that warms the Rose?
The cabbage is derived from a leafy wild mustard plant, native to the Mediterranean region. It was known to the ancient Greeks and Romans; The English name derives from the French/Norman caboche ("head"). The dense core of the cabbage is called the 'babchka.' It is related to the turnip and broccoli, kale and collards.

These summer harvest pixies are darling little cabbages, much like the Early Savoy Express, at about 1kg (2lbs) each. Beautiful leaves hold sweet flavour and are arranged in a rather loose creamy centre that is perfect for salads.

Brassica campestris subsp. pekinesis
This Chinese cabbage is often marketed as sui choi. These sweet, crisp greens are ideal for salads and a mainstay of the stir-fry. Big, broad, barrel-shaped, and pale-green heads are tightly packed and 0.6-2.2kg (11/2-5lb) after trimming. This variety has good bolt resistance and excellent uniformity. For full-sized heads sow in summer with the last planting 10 weeks before frost. Established plants are vigorous and will stand in the garden until freezes get severe. However, seedlings will bolt if they are exposed to temperatures below 10ºC (50ºF) for more than 2 weeks; so protect early spring planting with cloches.
