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 small Defence boost).
If cabbages are brought to Lunderwin at the Zanaris marketplace, they can be sold for 100 coins each (they must be unnoted). Cabbage is also an ingredient in garden pie.
During the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza, cabbages healed a player for 20,000 life points, 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.
Any item augmented with the Brassicanperk will randomly generate cabbages into the player's inventory.
A player is able to farm a cabbage at level 7 Farming. You gain 10 experience for planting the seed and 11.5 experience for harvesting the cabbage. It takes 30–35 minutes for the cabbage to fully grow. You can also have a farmer watch your cabbages for 1 sack of onions.
Cabbages are a running joke in RuneScape, with numerous references being made to them and their terrible taste. A god, Brassica Prime, is known to take the form of a cabbage.
During the 2009 April Fools event, cabbages in the Falador Cabbage Patch bounced around and could be kicked and held.
A breed of cabbage known as Deadly sea cabbages inhabit the seas around the Wushanko Isles. Unlike most cabbages, which are generally docile, these cabbages are hostile creatures, and routinely assault passing sea vessels.
