Default possible hybrid kale/collard growing

i have a single plant growing in the garden patch that is different from anything i have planted in the past. the leaf habit is long like a kale leaf would be, but the growth is large round individual globes of green that go up the stem. color is like a collard. i tried a bit of the stem raw, and it has a hot peppery taste. i cut the leaf, and stem up and threw it in with my scrambled eggs. tastes good.
in the past i have had both kale and collards go to seed at the same time, so i suspect this single plant may be a hardy hybrid. i will put a bucket over it this winter for protection, and see if i can get any seeds from the plant next summer.
