    Default Pointy cabbage?

    Is pointy cabbage the right name for the cabbage that is similar to
    white cabbage but more pointy in shape and more tender?

    It is not an incorrect name, but the problem is, it is all but unknown
    in America, for some reason.

    A lot of sauerkraut in Germany is made with Spitzkohl.

    Sounds like Napa Cabbage.

    Does it resemble this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napa_cabbage

    What you are thinking of may be what we call Chinese cabbage or
    Napa cabbage.

    No, we have that too and in denmark *they* use it as a replacement for
    salad. I grew up on that in the salad bowl instead of lettuce. Nasty
    habit.

    That cabbage you posted in the photo was the strangest thing I
    have seen in a long time. What's the difference in flavor
    between that and our regular "round" cabbage, Brassica oleracea
    Linne?

    Nothing but the best for a Spitzbubba, especially as one of the English
    names of Spitzkohl is "sweetheart cabbage" ...

    I remember replying to this , yet, dont see teh response.

    Pointy cabbage is more tender, have more "leaf area" rather than "stem
    area" ie. easy to bend.
    It tastes more mellow, making it more suitable as a kind of staple.
