Can you feed your small white cabbage butterflies fruit?
I'm usually trying to get the small white cabbage butterfly to vacate my garden, as their babies eat all the cabbage relatives plus a few other vegetables. As adults they get food from flower nectar. If you see the white cabbage on fruit, there is no reason not to let them partake of the sweetness. The female can live up to 3 weeks.
