SECOM has two varieties of cabbage, green and red. As far as taste goes, they both taste pretty much the same except that green cabbage turns sweeter when cooked, and it needs to be turned into sauerkraut to keep better over the cold season. Red cabbage keeps better without being pickled. It also turns slightly blue when cooked. Cabbage helps to keep you full, can pull cholesterol away from the heart, regulates bowels, and maintains steady blood sugar.
