Napa or nappa cabbage (Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis or Brassica rapa Pekinensis Group) is a type of Chinese cabbage originating near the Beijing region of China, and is widely used in East Asian cuisine. Since the 20th century, it has also become a widespread crop in Europe, the Americas and Australia. In much of the world, this is the vegetable referred to as “Chinese cabbage”. In Australia it is referred to as “wombok”. *https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napa_cabbage
Wombok cabbage is a cool season annual vegetable which grows best when the days are short and mild. The plant grows to an oblong shaped head consisting of tightly arranged crinkly, thick, light-green leaves with white prominent veins. Innermost layer leaves feature light yellow color.
Wombok is known as Napa Cabbage in many Asian countries and this variey of cabbage is the original that has been used in making kimchi.
In Australian kitchens, it is more common to eat it cooked or raw as salad or used in Kimchi.
