Red cabbage, touted as the most nutritious of the cabbage family, grew in volume by 48.9 per cent compared with last year.
It has up to ten times more vitamin A and twice as much iron as traditional green cabbage.
The findings were announced as part of National Cabbage Day on 17th February which Produce World used to plug the benefits of cabbages.
Agricultural director Andrew Burgess said: "Cabbage has been a part of a staple diet of many UK households for years due to its nutritional value and versatility as a vegetable.
"Luckily the UK has ideal growing conditions. Produce World provides enough for nearly half a million UK consumers each year.
"In general, cabbages are posting strong volume growth. New varieties of cabbage like Pointed Sweetheart helped pointed/crispy cabbage achieve a volume growth of 30 per cent.
"Meanwhile old favourites like white cabbage and savoy cabbage posted 15.2 per cent and 7.2 per cent volume growth respectively."
Produce World Group was founded 1898 and uses its own farms, joint-ventures and collaborative initiatives with growers supplying vegetables to retailers, food service and manufacturing customers.
