Water lettuce 

For its densely packed heads of leaves, the biennial plant known as cabbage (Brassica oleracea or its variations) is produced as an annual vegetable crop. It is descended from B. oleracea var. oleracea, a wild field cabbage, and is closely related to other cole crops like broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts.

Typically weighing between 1 and 8 pounds (0.5 and 4 kg), cabbage heads can be green, purple, or white. The most prevalent type of cabbage is smooth-leaved firm-headed green; smooth-leaved red and crinkle-leaved savoy cabbages of both hues are less frequently observed.
