Thanks for the comments, These plants are definitely neither compact nor rugosa foliage, looks like David is correct unfortunately...🥴

sorry i got it wrong, found them, its called Sticolli and its so nice, picked it today !
Definately not a new lock down gardener :), we get some plants from a nursery run by a now elderly couple and they grow so much veg and hanging baskets and i cant resist going there in the spring (even though some of their stuff is a bit early), grow a lot from seed ourselves but their stuff is cheap, good quality and its such a nice place to go to

I've heard of Flower Sprouts which are a cross between sprouts and kale an make little "florettes" of kale leaves up the stem, like sprouts do.  Taste lovely lightly steamed or done in a shallow pan with a thingy of butter, a tbs of water, S & P and a lid so they steam rather than boil dry.

I've also heard of brokali which is a Chinese form of broccoli.  I did have some seeds but then we moved.......  https://www.burpee.com/gardenadvicecenter/encyclopedia/vegetables/learn-about-brokali/encyclopedia__brokali-article.html

So am I, I may have had upto a hundred varieties over the last thirty years... can grow out about 24 each season and only keep about 60 in the "seed bank" so it's definitely a keeper!

These are strange times, the garden centres will be kidding all the new lockdown gardeners. I expect the dirt cheap price reflects that not many were taken in.

The Basics / Re: White Rot

Thanks everyone. The rot looks to be in patches so some may be saved. Is it like club root? Affecting some but not all? Oh well. Time to head for the plot and get a bit done before it gets too hot.

Are they kalettes / flower sprouts? If so, I guess you snap the heads off to pick them, like sprouts. I've not grown them but someone here will know!
