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")
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")
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.
History of character is unknown.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
