(Yabesha goma; Abyssinian mustard) Grown for centuries in the East African highlands, this tall kale adapts very well to North American gardens. The plants get up to 5 feet tall and produce loads of succulent tender leaves that are more sweet than bitter and are used exactly as you would regular kale. The Ethiopians use the leaves in many cooked vegetable dishes. Very easy to grow, start plants indoors exactly like you would cabbage or broccoli. Set the plants out after the danger of frosts. So far, we know this kale will flower and set seed as far north as Connecticut. Pick the leaves when tender and try them in salads either fresh or cooked like spinach.
