A cabbage (the Capitata form of Brassica oleracea) is an edible leafy vegetable native to Earth, although it has been known to be cultivated in otherworldly forms.

Cabbage is often considered to be very common in Human consideration and language. In 2369, Lieutenant Commander Eric Stiles, feeling ignored, asked Orsova if he was being treated like "chopped cabbage". (TNG novel: "Red Sector")

Cabbage was part of Chef's menu aboard Enterprise (NX-01) on Friday, 20 August 2152, served along with brisket and noodle kugel. (ENT episode: "Singularity")

Cabbage was one of the vegetables grown by Kes in USS Voyager's airponics bay in 2371. (VOY episode: "Elogium")

When the replicators in the mess hall of Voyager had trouble replicating items with high levels of cellulose, Neelix mentioned that it was causing cabbage to be replicated with a yellowish hue. (VOY episode: "Deadlock")

Muppet

(Redirected to Cabbages article)

From Muppet Wiki

A Muppet cabbage first appeared on The Muppet Show on episode 208 as part of Marvin Suggs' All Food Glee Club. During the number "Yes, We Have No Bananas," he is asked by Suggs: "How are you, Cabbage?" and responds "Oh, getting ahead."

A group of unruly cabbages were also featured in the 1979 graphic novel The Comic Muppet Book. The cabbages have spindly arms and legs, and wear walnut shells as helmets as they take to the halls of the Muppet Theater in revolt.

The cabbages make their presence felt early on in the book, calling Kermit and demanding a spot in the book for "the Cabbage Liberation Movement". Kermit refuses, and the cabbages yell, "Oh yeah? Then it's time we struck a blow for vegetable equality!" Kermit shrugs, "I think the cabbages are revolting." Soon, the cabbages take action, stealing Robin's skateboard from Fozzie Bear and rolling away, screaming, "CABBAGE POWER!"

The cabbages' specific revolutionary ambitions are unclear. They spend the rest of the book screeching around the theater on the purloined skateboard, yelling slogans. Finally, a team of Muppets -- including Robin, Dr. Teeth, Floyd Pepper, Animal and Sweetums -- manage to cut the cabbages off and capture them in a surprisingly difficult battle. (Dr. Teeth is seen afterwards looking bruised and shaken, despite the obvious imbalance between the opposing forces.)

The cabbages are brought to the canteen, where the Swedish Chef plans to cook some "yümmy cabbage stoöw". When the prisoners point at their walnut-shell hats and claim to be nuts, the Chef rubs his hands and suggests "der yümmy nüt cütlets". The rebellious cabbages are never seen again.

Cabbage, one of the oldest vegetables, continues to be a dietary staple and an inexpensive food. It is easy to grow, tolerates the cold, and keeps well. Cabbage is an excellent source of Vitamin C.

The cabbage (Brassica oleracea Capitata Group) is a plant of the Family Brassicaceae (or Cruciferae). It is herbaceous, biennial, and a dicotyledonous flowering plant with leaves forming a characteristic compact cluster. This so-called 'cabbage head' is widely consumed — raw, cooked, or preserved — in a great variety of dishes, and is thus a leaf vegetable.

The cabbage head was bred into the species from the leafy wild plant, found in the Mediterranean region around 100 AD. The English name derives from the French caboche ("head"). Varieties include red cabbage and savoy cabbage.

Besides cabbage proper, the species, Brassica oleracea has many distinctive cultivars, which are commonly known by other names: broccoli (Italica Group), cauliflower (Botrytis Group), kale, collard greens, and spring greens (Acephala Group), kohlrabi (Gongylodes Group), brussels sprouts (Gemmifera Group), Chinese kale or Chinese broccoli (Alboglabra Group), broccolini (Italica × Alboglabra Group), and broccoflower (Italica × Botrytis Group).

Chinese cabbage, while resembling cabbage, is an independent development from a different Brassica species. Kerguelen cabbage is yet another unrelated species.

Selection

Look for solid, heavy heads of cabbage. Avoid cabbage that has discolored veins or worm damage. Do not buy precut cabbage, the leaves may have already lost their vitamin C. Look for stems that are healthy looking, closely trimmed, and are not dry or split.

Storage

Keep cabbage cold. This helps it retain its vitamin C content. Place the whole head of cabbage in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator. Once the head has been cut, place the remainder in plastic bags and place in the refrigerator. Try to use the remaining cabbage in the next day or two.

Preparation

Do not wash cabbage until you are ready to use it. Avoid slicing or shredding cabbage in advance. This will cause it to lose some of its vitamin C content. If you must prepare it an hour or more in advance before cooking, place it in a plastic bag, seal tightly, and refrigerate.

Varieties

There are at least a hundred different types of cabbage grown throughout the world, but the most common types in the United States are the Green, Red, and Savoy varieties. Chinese varieties are also available. The two most common types of Chinese cabbage are Bok Choy and Napa cabbage. Chinese cabbage cooks in less time than standard U.S. types, but can be prepared in the same ways. Cabbage can be steamed, boiled, braised, microwaved, stuffed, or stir-fried.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about a food that heals 1 Hitpoint. For other uses, see Cabbage (disambiguation).

A Cabbage is a consumable item, which can be obtained either by growing it on a Farming patch, or by picking it in various areas around RuneScape. Upon eating it, it restores 1 hitpoint (the Draynor Manor variety heals 2). No cooking is required for consumption. It is also note worthy that there are two varieties, the only notable differences being that they have different examine texts, and that one yields either a +1 or +2 defence boost. However, it has been confirmed that this Defence boost does not stack with other Defence boosts, such as the Excalibur special attack, regardless of which boost you activate first. The abnormal variety is located in Draynor Manor (and heals 2), and the normal one can be found in various other places (and heals 1).

The best known place to pick cabbage is the cabbage patch in the farm south of Falador. The Explorer's ring 3, a reward for completion of the entire Lumbridge and Draynor Diary, is capable of teleporting there.

If cabbages are brought to the Zanaris marketplace, they can be sold for 100 coins each (they must be unnoted).

A player is able to farm a cabbage at level 7 farming. You gain 10 experience for planting the seed and 11.5 experience for harvesting the cabbage. It takes 30-35 mins for the cabbage to fully grow.

Trivia

  • During As a First Resort..., Balnea offers players the chance to partner in a lucrative new business venture. Players have the option to reply "I would rather fill my bank with cabbages" instead of accepting.
  • When picking cabbages, you can occasionally pick up a cabbage seed.
  • In the earlier years of RuneScape Classic, the game's chat filter would dub the word "cabbage" over anything offensive, furthering the use of the stereotype.
  • On April Fools' Day, 2007, a joke news post was released hinting at new "Cabbage armour" and a "Cabbage spellbook". The news post was removed the following day.
  • On 2009 April Fools, cabbages started jumping around and there were a variety of ways a player could interact with them you can kick and tap them. For example, players were able to pick them and then wield them as weapons and able throw to other players if the other player turned on accept aid. The cabbages returned to normal the following week. Some players hoarded large amounts of these cabbages during the event in hopes that once the event is over, they would become discontinued items and sell for a large profit in the future. However, it has been made clear that there will never be any more tradeable discontinued items due to the impact they have on the economy (e.g. the cost of partyhats).
  • If you used a cabbage with another cabbage during the April Fools event you would get an interesting message (shown below). This is a spoof of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, when Obi-Wan Kenobi uses a Jedi mind trick to fool some Imperial stormtroopers. In the scene, Obi-Wan says "These are not the droids you are looking for."File:Not the hidden message you are looking for.png
  • During the 2009 April Fools event, Cabbages rose  from around 5 coins to 23 coins in price.
  • Currently Andrew Gower's clan chat is called cabbage.
  • If a player types "andrew" in the notes it will say "Cabbage" instead.
  • If you try noting a cabbage using the Falador Allotment leprechaun, the leprechaun will refuse, stating that "the whole farm stinks of them." This is likely to stop players from using the leprechaun to obtain massive amounts of cabbages like this.
  • Juna, a Guardian of Guthix, claims that the cabbage is a "vegetable of Guthix", due to its green and leafy nature.
  • Upon eating cabbage, it will say "You eat the cabbage. Yuck!" However, eating a cabbage from Draynor Manor simply results in "You eat the cabbage." This may be because cabbage from Draynor Manor is enchanted, as learned during Black Knights' Fortress.
  • If your inventory is full and you try to pick a cabbage it will say "You don't have room for this cabbage."
  • Cabbages are considered a running joke in RuneScape, as often players will joke about them. In fact, many Jagex Moderaters and even Andrew Gower seem to be obsessed with them. This is supported by a large number of references in-game, as seen above.
  • If you ask the cook at the Blue Moon Inn if he has any food for sale, he will reply that he does have cabbage, and sell it to you for 1 coin
  • The cabbages at draynor manor boosts your defence by 1 when consumed.
