Seed Story

Red cabbage originates from Europe

The first record of red cabbage in England is during 1570 but we do know that it was used by peasant families in the 14th Century to feed themselves and their livestock. Red cabbage was introduced by the Romans.

Red cabbage is 10 times more nutrient dense than green cabbage  with high levels of antioxidants. A real superfood!
