Crop facts

TheĀ Brassica oleraceae plant is native to the Mediterranean and in wild form looks somewhat similar to a leafy canola plant. Through simple selection by farmers growing the plant over seven thousand years, six very different vegetables were developed; including kale, cabbage, kohlrabi, cauliflower, broccoli, and brussel sprouts. They are all the same species: Brassica oleraceae.

Today China is the largest producer of cabbage, followed by India and Russia, which is the biggest consumer of cabbage as well.
