Sea Kale (Crambe maritima) Plant
1 year old plant grown from a root cutting.
This perennial vegetable is usually my first recommendation to people interested in getting started with perennial edibles. It has many harvest windows through the season, from shoots, to leaves, to flower buds to immature seed pods, all tasty. A single plant in full sun can grow to 3’ and provide large crops of collard green like leaves. Often grown as a ornamental for its striking foliage and prolific, honey-scented flowers. Hardy to zone 5.
