Cabbage Ethiopian - 40 Heirloom Seeds
Brassica carinata syn. Melanosinapis abyssinica
Also known as Abyssinian mustard, Ethiopian kale
As its name suggests, this biennial cousin of kale (technically, mustard) is grown as a leafy green in Ethiopia. It is an indigenous African vegetable variety rich in glucosinolates. The leaves have a milder flavour than either kale or mustard but are rich in nutrients. The flowers are beautiful to honey bees, and 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 delicious. Plant some Ethiopian kale seeds in containers or raised beds.
Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
