What are the pros? large plants, texture, flavor
What are the cons? buggy in summer
Really enjoy Baker creek's Blue Scotch Kale. Elsewhere I can only find dwarf versions of this variety. These plants are big enough to compete with weeds therefore the non-dwarf is much better for me. Loved eating kale chips with my kid all spring and fall!

What are the pros? Reliable, does good in heat
What are the cons? None that I can find!
This is a good kale. It produces well and keeps going in the heat with little watering. Looking forward to continual harvest until my plants give up the ghost.

What are the pros? amiable
What are the cons? ?
After two weeks of over a hundred degrees it is still not bolting and producing well. Two of the days were 113 degrees with no humidity. I watered once a day and that was it.

What are the pros? greens all winter
What are the cons? none
We grow scotch kale every year, the only year we had a failure was the year the chinook melted all the snow and there was no covering for the plants when the weather got seriously cold again. Otherwise they survive nicely under a blanket of leaves or straw, and a tarp over the top to prevent ice forming in the blanket. We harvest it all winter long. We believe lack of fresh plant matter is a big contributor to SAD up here (canned food, even home grown, doesn't have the same effect) and so kale is always one of the first plants on the list when planning the new year's garden.

What are the pros? Survived Snow and arctic temps
What are the cons? N/A
Sowed this in July, transplanted in mid August. Winter here has been terrible; snow, freezing temps and unrelenting bad weather. I gave this plant absolutely zero protection.
However, I took a shovel out to the field two weeks ago and dug out my kale, buried under 3 feet of snow. Still alive, still blue green, and even sweeter than standard kale. No one can believe my kale is still alive.
I can hardly believe it either, but it was a pure joy to eat this fresh vegetable in March.
