Hint: Cabbage (Brassica oleracea cultivars) is a leafy green, red (purple), or white (pale green) biennial plant grown as an annual vegetable crop for its densely leafed heads.

Complete answer:
Cabbage is a type of herb. All cabbage family leaves are edible, but the strong flavors of some species are disagreeable or too strong for most people's taste. The cabbage leaves are all edible and do not taste like bugs. The cabbage leaf is a type of leaf, and the cabbage stem is also edible.

Cabbage weights typically range between 500 and 1,000 grams (1 to 2 lb). Smooth-leafed, firm-headed green cabbages are the most common, with smooth-leaved purple cabbages and crinkle-leafed savoy cabbages in both colors being more uncommon. Cabbage can grow quite large in conditions of long sunny days, such as those found in high northern latitudes in summer.

In 2012, the heaviest cabbage weighed 62.71 kilograms (138 lb 4 oz). Cabbage heads are typically harvested during the first year of the plant's life cycle, but plants intended for seed are allowed to grow for a second year and must be kept separate from other cole crops to avoid cross-pollination. Cabbage is susceptible to a variety of nutrient deficiencies, as well as pests and bacterial and fungal infections.
Cabbage is the plant's vegetative bud, according to morphology. It is made up of the growing stem's tip and rounded, overlapping leaves.

Thus, the bud of the plant is cabbage.
Note: Cabbage is grown primarily for its densely leaved heads, which appear during the first year of its biennial cycle. Plants perform best when grown in well-drained soil in full sun. Different varieties prefer different soil types, ranging from lighter sand to heavier clay, but all prefer fertile soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.8.
