Kale Seeds - Black Magic

Borecole

A growing stack of evidence shows compounds called glucosinolates found in crops like kale may suppress the development of cancer cells from the colon, lungs, liver, bladder, breast and stomach. Suttons and Exeter University tested various cruciferous veg for glucosinolates and Kale Black Magic showed by far the highest levels of all, with more than 5x the levels of some of the others. A newish, cut and come again variety, bred for the British climate, it makes a great addition to the diet but would look great in a potager border too!

Why grow and eat a rainbow? The dazzling colours of fruit and vegetables are given to them by a range of natural compounds which can be beneficial to health. In fact, research has shown that diets rich in these colourful crops may reduce the risk of a whole range of diseases, from heart disease to cancer. That’s why doctors and dietitians recommend we ‘Eat a Rainbow’. To help you on your way, we have researched hundreds of varieties to find those with the very highest levels of these nutrients.

James Wong has spent 2 years trawling through over 3,000 research papers to learn how to boost the nutrition in selected plants and has written a book called ‘How to Eat better’ which includes practical tips and tricks.
