Crambe maritima

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

Sea-kale was once extensively cultivated as a vegetable, so much so that it was even exported. The young shoots are blanched under pots to reduce bitterness. They can then be picked and served like spinach. The caterpillars of the large and small white butterflies will feed on sea-kale.
