* Japanese cabbage is a real exotic, it is the most little-known among cabbages. It is grown mainly in Japan and on the Pacific coast of China.
In terms of its biochemical composition, it differs little from Peking and Chinese cabbage. Moreover, it is in Japanese cabbage that the least mustard oils are contained, which give cabbage plants a specific taste and aroma.
This cabbage grows a little slower than Peking and Chinese cabbage.
Since the leaves contain less mustard oils than Chinese cabbage and Chinese cabbage, Japanese cabbage is even more beneficial for cardiovascular diseases and stomach ulcers.
They are mainly eaten fresh for salads, sandwiches, decorating dishes.
