We bought "purple cauliflower" seeds online (from China). The attached picture shows the result; both plants are from the same package of seeds. I can see that the plant on the left is cauliflower, but I've been unable to identify the dark green leafy plant growing next to it. What is it? Are the leaves edible?

We cannot say for sure what the plant is. It looks possibly like swiss chard.
You can transplant the cauliflower and let the plant grow and see what develops.
