Brassica carinata. As its name suggests, this cousin of kale (technically, it’s a mustard) is grown as a leafy green in Ethiopia. The leaves have a milder flavour than either kale or mustard, but are rich in nutrients. The flowers are highly attractive to honey bees, and the seeds are a potential source for bio-fuel. The plants are cold hardy and drought resistant. Grow for tasty, nutritious baby greens or full size leaves. The full sized leaves benefit from blanching or stir-frying to become tender and tasty. Plant some Ethiopian kale seeds in containers or raised beds.
Matures in 48 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
