What to look out for

Look for heads that are firm to the touch, with leaves  tightly packed close together. Avoid heads of cabbage with brown or black stains, or with signs of bruising, wilting or discolouration, as these may be signs of aged cabbage.

Avoid  cabbage  that has an off smell, feels soft or looks discoloured.


Cabbages usually can come in a variety of ways, such as red, purple or green cabbage. Green cabbage is by far the most popular and easy to find inside supermarkets. This vegetable by its own means usually can have a shelf life longer than other fruits and vegetables.

Fridge: A head of cabbage can last up to 2 months in the fridge. Just place the whole head inside a loose plastic bag and place it in the vegetable drawer of the fridge, or inside the crisper drawer of your fridge.

Freezer: Cabbage can be left in the freezer for up to 9 months.  You will need to need blanch the vegetable first, to keep its colour and crunchiness intact.
