What are the pros? Self sufficiant, easy, hardy
What are the cons? bugs (sometimes)
Good, cold hardy variety. These are still kicking in our garden today (January 31st). They have not been babied or covered and have survived 2 icestorms (though many of our trees did not!). We planted them earlier in the year and they were munched on a bit when the bugs were still out (warmer weather), but now they are just as happy as can be. I'd grow these again.

What are the pros? Tough plants, tasty
What are the cons? -
Started these in modules in July to plant out for winter. Despite the containers getting excessive abuse from squirrels in the late summer/fall and a very warm/dry October, the seedling grew on strongly. We planted them out in raised bed in October and they have been doing well ever since. They don't seem to mind the partial shade the garden gets in winter, and show fantastic cold hardiness. We've had a moderate amount of rain, and I've had to do no extra watering. I'm excited to see how far into winter we can keep these plants going.
The leaves hold up very well in soups and sauteed. Definitely will be returning in our garden next year!

What are the pros? Heat- and cold-tolerant, easy
What are the cons? None
Planted this last year and LOVED it. Here in WV we have weather that can get into the 90s in summer, but this kale held up to the heat perfectly! Didn't require a lot of water or special care. I planted it in early May and it lasted through the summer and is still going strong in late October, despite a few light freezes. Not to mention the flavor is superb. Definitely recommend it.

What are the pros? Delicious, Large Plants
What are the cons? N/A
This is the second year that we have planted Blue Curled Scotch Kale and neither year have we been disappointed! This year our raised beds were ever-full of this beautiful and delicious kale! Our family planted only a half packet in the spring and we had more than enough Kale for our family's consumption throughout the summer and fall. Before our first frost, we picked off all that was remaining to freeze for use this winter in smoothies, etc. and had such a wonderful surplus that we shared with friends, family and neighbors who could do the same! We will definitely be planting again next season!

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!
