When is red cabbage in season?
Red cabbage is a cool season crop and is typically in season in the UK from late autumn to early spring. The peak season for red cabbage is typically from October to February. It can withstand frost and can be stored for several months if kept in a cool, dark and dry place.
Red cabbage is a versatile vegetable that can be eaten raw or cooked and it is a good source of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6 and potassium.
It adds a nice colour and flavour to salads, sandwiches, soups, stews and it can be pickled or fermented. If you're looking to buy red cabbage, they are most flavourful and crisp when they are in-season, so it's best to purchase them during their peak season, when they will be at their freshest and most flavourful.
