    Cabbages is a plant species ( Brassica oleracea ), with many many varieties and cultivars. This is similar to many garden vegetables. So environment could change it, but mostly, pollen easily mix with other varieties, so seeds are often not 100% of a single variety. Variability is the norm (in cultivated plants).

  • As often with these types of vegetable- seeds are only really supplied by seed companies, and there are hundreds of varieties available. I wouldn't grow all one type anyway, can cause problems with pests etc build up. succession throughout the year can done with several different varieties- I would grow something different every time and experiment with every new crop. Would also be helpful if one kept records at home too.
