Rwanda cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. Capitata) is one of the most common leafy vegetables in any market. The Great Lakes region’s country had about 8, 153 hectares under cabbages in the year 2008. The principal producing areas included Gicumbi district to the north. The crop has been improving regarding yields with the current output being 8.8 tons per hectare. The main types under production include Green Savoy, Gloria F1 and Asian varieties. The dome-headed plant features green-blue leaves that curve around the dome. There are also red, purple and even white-leafed variations.
The origin of the cabbage was in Europe around 1000 B.C. Anglo Saxons crossed the wild version with others to form heads. The crop would come to Asia via Rome where Romans made it a royal delicacy. The missionaries brought the vegetable to Africa.

We source Rwanda cabbages from family growers in all parts of Rwanda including the northern region where Gicumbi is district is situated. All our sources practice organic agriculture. They enrich the soil in their 1 to 2-acre fields with farmyard compost. They also abstain from the use of chemical sprays to reduce high residual levels.
We harvest Rwanda cabbages when the head has attained a firm, circular look. The leaves surrounding the dome at this time are of a turquoise green color. We cut the vegetables at the base with a part of the stalk intact. We stow away the pieces to the packing shed for sorting, grading, and packing.
Our sorting process involves the trimming of mainly the Green Savoy cultivar. Most other varieties require just the removal of a few leaves. In every piece, we keep part of the foliage around the cabbage head. We finally clean, remove any unsorted debris and get ready to pack the naturally smelling vegetables.
