White cabbage, Brassica oleracea convar. capitata var. alba / Cruciferae (Brassicaceae)
Cabbages are one of the eldest vegetables known; they were already cultivated by the Egyptians in 2,500 B.C. Their origin is still not clear. Some authors think that they come from the coastal areas of the Mediterranean sea, whereas others state that they come from Minor Asia, from where they were taken to Europe. The Greeks and the Romans conferred them medicinal properties.

The figures of production, export and import of the FAO for the oleraceae under the term " cabbages" include all the Brassicae except for broccoli and cauliflower (headed cabbages, Chinese cabbages, red cabbage, Savoy cabbage, Brussels sprouts and kohlrabi). The main producing countries are China, Russia, India and Korea.
