Thought to have been domesticated about 6000 years ago. Ethiopian Kale is possibly a cross between Brassica nigra and Brassica oleracea and is technically a mustard.

Will go to seed in Hawai'i, but does not cross-pollinate with other Brassicas.

Hawai‘i Seed Growers Network

The Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network is a statewide group of artisanal farmers that have worked together over the past 13 years to develop and grow high-quality, locally grown, and adapted seed varieties for Hawai‘iʻs home gardeners and market farmers. Varieties selected for their online marketplace have been tested for multiple years by seed growers on their farms and gardens under Hawai‘i’s unique and diverse, subtropical climatic conditions. Seed growers carefully observe, hand select, and harvest from only the best plants to ensure well-adapted, healthy seeds sprout and grow well in your home garden. All seeds are open-pollinated (OP) varieties that allow you to begin saving your own seed, improving and strengthening these varieties in your home garden. Seeds are properly dried, tested for germination according to USDA standards, and carefully stored to ensure viability at N. Kohala Seed Bank, Nahelehele. Growing tips and seed-saving information are available on the Hawaiʻi Seed Growers Network website through the Blogs and Resource pages at: hawaiiseedgrowersnetwork.com.
