Sea Kale

Sea Kale is found growing mainly on shingle beaches and is the fore bearer of cultivated cabbage, although the leaves are thick and can be waxy, they are good to eat, traditionally the plants were forced by covering them with sand or pebbles and the resulting tender stems then blanched. The plant is rare, due to its specific habitats, although common in these parts and a single plant can produce up to 10,000 seeds a year.
