Crambe maritima (Seakale) Lily White
Seakale. A perennial of the brassica family, seakale grows 60 cm (2 ft) high. Most often grown for the edible shoots, which are usually blanched for several weeks before harvesting (Lily White is a variety whose stems blanch well). The young leaves, though, are also edible and make a good cooked vegetable, and the excellent young flowering shoots are cooked and used like sprouting broccoli. Can be used as a ground cover plant. Grow in most soils in sun or part shade; hardy to -23ºC.
