I know cabbage seeds come from a cabbage.
How do they form in order to be harvested?

Cabbage seeds can only be harvested in certain parts of the United States due to the climate. It takes 2 years to get the seeds. The first year, the heads grow as normally seen in the stores. They then let them sit all winter, not letting them freeze. In the spring again, they cut a slit in the top of the head and the plant then flowers. The seeds are harvested from there like any other regular flower.

Visit this website... it tells about them

Cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli are all similar plants. The fruit is just different. If you look at a broccoli top from the grocer, you can see the buds. If the broccoli is left for too long, the top may turn yellow and you can see the open flowers. Cabbage and cauliflower will do the same type of thing if left too long in the garden. After the flowers drop off, the plant will produce seeds. These seeds are then harvested by shaking the top of the stem.

I never knew that it took two years.....I thought it went to seed at the end of the growing season if not picked. Interesting.

I have enjoyed all the comments
I just knew my Mom used to sow cabbage seed and I just got to wondering how they formed.

I'm glad others have asked the same question. I asked northern formers and they didn't know either.

This must be a topic on a lot of minds! My husband and I were just discussing the very same thing last week! We googled it that night, and I, too, was surprised to see that it took two years!
With the price of food skyrocketing, growing a garden is one thing many more people should (and many are!) be learning about and doing!
I am also very glad to see something constructive on topix for a change!

I'd say either the store or most likely the CABBAGE itself.

I have just started growing my own with all the things they are doing to the food and we don't know what they are grown in I was very curious too, we are not bored as some people think just wishing to learn these things to gain more experience regards
