In inventory: Yuck, I don't like cabbage.
Cabbages are edible green vegetables, which can be obtained by growing them in a Farming patch or by picking them in various areas around RuneScape. Upon eating one, it restores 210 life points (the Draynor Manor variety also gives a 3 point Defence boost).
The best known place to pick cabbage is the cabbage patch in the farm south of Falador. The explorer's ring 3, a reward for completion of the medium Lumbridge and Draynor Tasks, can be used to teleport the player there.
If cabbages are brought to Lunderwin at the Zanaris marketplace, they can be sold for 100 coins each (they must be unnoted). If lower level players who have finished A Fairy Tale Part III - Battle at Ork's Rift seek a unique (yet somewhat time consuming, though consistent) money making method, the process of selling cabbages may be a potentially rewarding and highly profitable alternative to combat or skilling money making methods.
During the Easter holiday event of 2014, cabbages healed a player for 20000lp, the highest of any healing item in the game, when eaten within the event area. There were some reports of the cabbages healing outside of the designated event area, but this was patched shortly after the release of the event.
