Cretan Cabbage

Brassica cretica


Brassica cretica is a coastal species, belonging to a group of Mediterranean species from which the garden cabbage was cultivated. In Israel it is found in a single population in lower Mt Carmel, just near the famous prehistoric man caves.


In grows on a limestone cliff. Today we found the population (100-150 plants) in full bloom. It is a local endangered species, although it is found in a nature reserve on an inaccessible cliff.
