A dark-leaved, intensely-curled, fully winter hardy variety which stands well without yellowing and can be picked for much of the year from successional sowings. Although mainly used in winter as mature leaves, it can also be used in summer as tasty ‘baby’ leaves. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. The most reliable, nutritious winter vegetable. Withstands adverse weather conditions to yield a good crop of delicious young foliage and sideshoots in winter and spring.
Tom says: Kale has had a huge resurgence in recent years thanks to it’s incredibly high nutritional values, so much so that we’ve seen headlines like “Kale shortage imminent”. Easy to grow, incredibly productive and with a multitude of colours and leaf shapes… what’s not to like?
