Yikes! That’s some serious cabbage!

How much would you pay for a head of cabbage? Let me rephrase that, how much would you be willing to spend for a head of cabbage?

In this photo, via the Joong Ang Daily, a head of cabbage at a market in Seoul is 11,600 won, or $10.12.

That’s got to put a dent in one’s pocketbook, especially when cabbage is one of the main staples of the Korean diet (kimchi). And with kimjang (the making of kimchi) just around the corner, it’s going to put even a bigger dent in folks’ pocketbooks here.

    That is very expensive. I guess they hike up the price before the Kimjang season, the basic law of supply and demand at work. :)

    I wouldn’t spend no more than $2.00 on it. I’m not that big of a cabbage fan anyways.

    That is very interesting. I just read an article in The Economist about that. http://www.economist.com/blogs/asiaview/2010/10/kimchi&fsrc=nwl

    I love kimchee. I ate it with just about everything. I’ve been making my own kimchee. It taste so much better and less stinky than the store bought too.
