Cabbages this Valentines?

Found another great Cabbage & Valentines Day inspired story, this time from the Fresh Produce Journal - Freshino News.

Valentines Day has arrived and, for those still scratching their heads, one farmer has come up with the ultimate unusual gift – bouquet cabbages.

Grown in Boston, Lincolnshire by cabbage specialist TH Clements the new varieties offer something romantic and edible – an imaginative step away from traditional flowers and chocolates.

Chris Gedney, managing director of TH Clements, said: "We are always looking to develop new and exciting varieties of products for our customers.
"After a few trials it became clear that the flowering cabbages were going to be a big hit, especially with the most romantic day of the year approaching.

"When we introduced them into the pack house many of the staff joked that we were turning into a florist as opposed to a vegetable packers.

"We have even supplied them for a wedding, where the bride was looking for an innovative ╩╗something new╩╝.

The products have since been nicknamed Cupids Cabbage by the staff at TH Clements.

Flowering cabbages are on sale nationwide for a limited time in selected retailers at 89p per cabbage.
