Napa cabbage is widely used in China, Japan, and Korea. Napa cabbage is used as a sign of prosperity in China and often appears as a symbol in glass and porcelain figures. The Jadeite Cabbage sculpture of Taiwan’s National Palace Museum is a carving of a napa cabbage variety.
It was also found in North American, European and Australian cities after Asian immigrants settled in the regions.
In Korean cuisine, napa cabbage is the main ingredient of Baechu kimchi, the most common type of kimchi.
