Buyer's guide

Spring green leaves should look fresh, bright green and crisp. Avoid any that are wilting or flabby.

Originally available only in spring, spring greens are now available most of the year.


Eat leafy spring cabbages as soon as possible after purchase as they won’t keep more than a day or two even in the fridge.


Wash, shred and lightly steam or boil to serve as a vegetable accompaniment.
