Cabbage - Head


The head of the cabbage plant is made up of several layers of overlapping leaves. Head cabbage and head lettuce are similar in appearance, but cabbage leaves are usually more tightly wrapped on the head.

Cabbage plants can vary in size, shape, color, and texture.  For example, some cabbages are purple in color and certain cultivars have pointed heads.
