Nepal's eastern hill districts have been exporting cabbage in the thousands of tonnes to India as demand for organic vegetables sees a steep rise. The cabbage harvest season has started in the hills of Sankhuwasabha, Tehrathum and Dhankuta.

The Koshi Corridor is a large producer of green and fresh vegetables as the crops are mostly grown naturally. The value of the cabbage exported to India annually stands at around Rs500 million. At this time of the year, the landscape of the eastern hills are covered with cabbage, and agro tourism is also becoming popular in these districts.

Laxman Bhattarai, manager of the Agricultural Commodity Market Management Committee, Dharan, said that cabbage was the most sought-after vegetable crop among Indian buyers.
