(Best months for growing Cabbage in New Zealand - cool/mountain regions)
There are many varieties of cabbage.
Those which stand winter weather usually have darker leaves and a stronger flavour, e.g. Savoy. Red cabbage is grown in a similar way to green varieties.
If you choose a selection of types you can have cabbage growing all year round in temperate zones.
Young spring cabbage can be chopped and added to salad greens.
Steaming preserves the goodness and flavour of cabbage.
Can also be used in stir-fry.
Red cabbage chopped and cooked with brown sugar, red wine, onions, vinegar and stock is served with boiled bacon or pork.
