Guido Geelen

Rodekool, boerenkool en savooiekool

Heavy question

If you had to guess. Which one of these cabbages do you think is the heaviest?


The cabbage on the left is a red cabbage made of gilded aluminum. It weighs 9,1 kilos. The one in the middle is kale. It is made from aluminum as well and it weighs 20,2 kilos. That is more than double the weight of the red cabbage. The cabbage on the left is savoy cabbage. This one is by far the heaviest, it weighs 49,1 kilos. That is because it is made out of bronze.
