Gracias a todos, es muy curiose ver cómo lo que en un sitio significa una cosa, en otro es otra completamente distinta. Aun así me quedan dudas sobre la diferencia entre Kale y Collard Greens, sé que son cosas distintas con distinta composición pero la misma traducción al Castellano y al Holandés. Curioso, no?.

Gracias a todos.

kale vs. collard greens


Explanation:
Noony,
"Collard greens" are the edible green leaves from vegetables of the genus Brassica (which includes many varieties of cabbage), whereas "kale" (also called "peasant cabbage", "curly kale" or sometimes "kail" is a more restricted term: it's one of the two varieties of cabbage known by the scientific name Brassica oleracea var. acephala, i.e. one with a thick stem from which spring large, curly leaves.
The problem is that the OTHER variety of Brassica oleracea var. acephala is knowno in English as "collard" (period), or "colewort", or "field kale".
But then sometimes "collard" is used as a synonym for "collard greens" (a term that, however, is more comprehensive, as pointed out above).
I may be mistaken, but in Argentina we just call them all "repollos" - and don't eat very much of it anyway (except in some German restaurants).
I suppose you're more confused now than you were before...!
Ciao.
Oscar.
