How to Buy Cabbage

  1. Look for solid heavy heads of cabbage with no more than 3-4 loose outer leaves. Note that fall and winter cabbage heads are firmer and heavier than freshly picked cabbage sold in Spring to Summer.
  2. The outer leaves should be clean and crisp not limp, and free of discoloured veins or worm damage.
  3. The stem should be closely trimmed and healthy looking, not dry or split.
  4. Savoy types have looser heads and are lighter in weight.
  5. Don’t buy halved or quartered heads of cabbage. As soon as cabbage leaves are cut, the vegetable begins to lose vitamin C.
