    Hello Rajan,
    This was a bit of a brain twister.
    There are a few different names, and apparently many are wrongly called Kale.

    I hope this helps.

    Kale is not a native plant/green in Nigeria, and thus will only be referred to as 'green' or 'efo' meaning, 'the green leaf'. I actually have not seen kale in Nigerian markets. I'm not saying it isn't there, but could be rare as most imported veggies.

    Take a look here at some of our Nigerian green leaf vegetables.
