Brassica carinata

Texsel is especially good for temperate climates, it is fast growing even at relatively low temperatures. A fairly hardy, mild cabbage flavour, nutritious greens type originating from Ethiopian Mustard. Chopped finely & used in mixed salads or eaten cooked. Fast growing & popular for salad leaves if cut young & tender under 30 cm tall. Also known as Ethiopian kale, Ethiopian mustard & Abyssinian mustard. Seeds can also be crushed and used as a condiment. Highly nutritious, with a good slightly spinachy flavour, generally used as a salad vegetable when young; more mature plants are used cooked. They are reasonably hardy and can be harvested at any stage – crops best between autumn & spring. Sow at regular intervals for a continued supply.

Direct sow 6 weeks before the last frost, or start under protection 3 weeks before that. Start before the first frost for autumn/winter crops. Cabbage likes fertile soil & steady moisture.
