Williams quoted $5 for green cabbage mid- to late January, and said some shippers were quoting in the $4-a-carton range.

Williams said abnormal warm weather kept Georgia and North Carolina producing longer than normal, and favorable growing conditions are helping Florida production.

“Gradually, it will get better,” Williams said.

In late January, the USDA reported $5-5.50 for 50-pound cartons of medium green cabbage with red selling for $9-10.
