Cabbage, (Brassica olearacea), biennial vegetable from which other brassicas, such as kale, cauliflower, and broccoli, have been developed. The cabbage originated many centuries ago from the European wild cabbage. It has a characteristic tight “head” of leaves. Cabbages can be boiled or pickled, or fermented in salt to give sauerkraut; also used as animal feed.
