Cabbage can continue thriving in light freezing temperatures, and even as low as 26 degrees, even if they've been snowed on. Temperatures lower than this, or sustained temperatures below 28 degrees, can damage the leaves, so they should be harvested before this happens. Some cabbage varieties are even more cold hardy than this.
