Sprouting cabbage has loosely packed leaves in heads about the size of a golf ball. They resemble a cross between small romaine lettuce heads and Brussels sprouts. Their flavor is milder and sweeter than the main cabbage head. Use the sweet crispy leaves raw or lightly sautéed.
The season for Sprouting cabbage can vary, but typically occurs 4-6 weeks after the spring and fall harvests of the main cabbage heads.
Cabbage is a cool season vegetable botanically classified as Brassica oleracea. After the main cabbage heads are harvested the roots and leaves are typically removed, but if left, a second crop of smaller cabbage heads will sprout. These small, Brussels sprout-like heads develop from buds located in the bases of the older leaves. Sprouting Cabbage is an underutilized culinary ingredient because it is rarely left to develop.
