A farmer from Liyai Khunou (Chilao) village in Manipur’s Senapati district bordering Nagaland has grown a huge cabbage weighing 7.5 kilograms, picture of which has gone viral on social media.

Cabbage normally weights from 500 to 2,000 kilograms.

What makes the gigantic cabbage even more special is that it was reportedly grown by using traditional methods.

At a time when naturally grown green and leafy vegetables have become an oddity, this picture.

The picture, which was posted on the popular Facebook page ‘Naga Hills’, has garnered 65,000 likes and over 1,000 users have shared it.

As expected, netizens have expressed their awe at this giant cabbage. Many social media users hailed the organic farming practices in the Northeast region.

“I think a Northeast Ministry for organic vegetables/fruits/bamboo etc has to be set up and marketed professionally to the international market. Farmer to the customer without middlemen,” Ramesh Nambiar, a Facebook user, wrote.
