Locally grown by Norm Lehne Garden & Orchards (Roseburg) and Valley Flora Farm (Langlois), and available from one or both farms, depending on the season (specified above). Both farms grow cabbage using organic practices.
Savoy cabbage is named for the region where it is believed to have originated: the Savoy which straddles the Alpine regions of Italy and France. It has a yellow-green, nearly round head with wrinkled leaves. Because savoy cabbage is so tender, it requires much less cooking than other cabbage varieties.
Keeping your cabbage cold will help it retain its nutrients and crisp texture. Place inside a plastic bag first. Most cabbages will stay in prime condition for up to two weeks, but if you have purchased Savoy cabbage, plan on using it within a week.
