Wow, you have set us a task there my potatoes, I thought it would be relatively easy but no. Have spent a good half hour between my reference books and good old google and all I could come up with was Brassica Oleracea var. acephala. Hope that helps. Probably not!

Funnily enough, I also have this cabbage from the Seed Savers a few years back. This is the first season it's taken properly. Alas, so far, it looks nothing like my CCA cabbage.

Thanks.

I suspect it is from the Acephala group but which strain exactly I don't know.
Thanks.
