It is Kale, a member of the brassica family. Kale or leaf cabbage is a group of vegetable cultivars within the plant species Brassica oleracea. They have green or purple leaves, in which the central leaves do not form a head. My grandfather grew it and my grandmother made a very fine soup with it. Very nutritious!
