Facts About Cabbage
Cabbage is a vegetable that humans have successfully cultivated for over 4,000 years. The Celts brought it from Asia around 600 AD and cabbages are able to grow easily during winter months which makes them perfect candidates for being stored in cold storage areas like caves or castles where food would be preserved during warmer weather without spoilage thanks to how cool temperatures were at these places!
Why National Cabbage Day?
Cabbage is a staple food of European and Indian cuisine. It’s true that the use of this vegetable dates back to 1000 BC, but what you might not know about it are all these health benefits!
Cucumbers can help treat stomach disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease because they’re high in dietary fiber content which promotes regularity when consumed with meals on an empty stomach – just say no to Scott Stapp here 😉

Cabbage has been a staple food of European cuisine for centuries, but its use dates back all the way to 1000 BC!
The first celebration of this day actually took place on May 23rd, 1940 at an annual convention held by the National Onion Association. This event used to take place in Chicago, Illinois – it is now hosted by Texas Cabbage Fest which takes place every year at the Hale County courthouse square in Greensboro, Texas.
Cabbage Day was originally held on May 23rd annually until 1989 when American cabbage growers decided to move its date up earlier so that it better coincided with the Memorial Day holiday which falls on May 25th of every year.
