Grown in Boston, Lincolnshire by cabbage specialist TH Clements the new varieties offer something romantic and edible – an imaginative step away from traditional flowers and chocolates.
Chris Gedney, managing director of TH Clements, said: "We are always looking to develop new and exciting varieties of products for our customers.
"After a few trials it became clear that the flowering cabbages were going to be a big hit, especially with the most romantic day of the year approaching.
"When we introduced them into the pack house many of the staff joked that we were turning into a florist as opposed to a vegetable packers.
"We have even supplied them for a wedding, where the bride was looking for an innovative ʻsomething newʼ.
The products have since been nicknamed Cupids Cabbage by the staff at TH Clements.
Flowering cabbages are on sale nationwide for a limited time in selected retailers at 89p per cabbage.
