60 days. This loose-leafed cabbage dates back to the early 1800’s at least. It has beautiful, deep black-green leaves that can be 24” long. They are heavily savoyed. This Italian heirloom is popular in Tuscany and central Italy for making fabulous soups and stews. One of the most beautiful and flavorful types you can grow.

What are the pros? Very tasty variety of Kale

What are the cons? Name is misleading~

Review:

Nero di Toscana Cabbage (aka Tuscan Kale, Cavalo Nero, Lacinato Kale, Dinosaur Kale) I wanted to grow this so bad because it sounded so interesting but the seeds were sold out. Well come to find out I already had this growing in my garden. I knew this veggie as a type of Kale by the above mentioned names. Glad they were out of seeds because I already have 5 plants of this growing in my garden. It is indeed a very delicious Kale. I just wanted to spread the word for others who may also be confused or mislead by the type of seeds these are listed as.

Review:

I loved how easy and fast and self-replenishing this kale grew. I had trouble with the seedlings getting eaten by aphids but used orange oil to keep the bugs from munching on all the leaves. The plants recovered really well and are doing fantastic. Kale for days!

Review:

We planted these for our market garden, but very few made it to market... We ate them all! We ate many VERY young in salads (great texture addition) but the real highlight was when they got large... the kids had a blast snipping new leaves off every few days (for months!) and bringing them in to bake them as chips. They excelled for this! Also notable is that when picking, we'd look under the leaves first. These plants were a magnet for beneficial insects, and we saw that the little garden spiders liked to hang out under them. The cabbages next to these had almost no insects, while ones further down had more. I will be planting lots this year, and put them in between my crops that tend to get insect damage. Great plant!

What are the pros? Tasty, produces a ton

What are the cons? Not frost resistant

Review:

Beautiful plants, only had aphids on one, chickens appreciated that :) Use it to make raw salads all summer long with EVOO, lemon juice, red onion, pine nuts. Produced from Easter until Thanksgiving for me. Dark green long leaves, can keep harvesting leaves from bottom, allowing top to grow. Late summer plantings look pathetic in garden but still alive (is January), hoping for rabe.

Review:

I started these seeds at the same time as my other cabbage, kale, and broccoli. These little plants would die off very easily, they didn't transplant very well at all, and in the end I only had 1 plant out of 24 that survived. My others kinds all did excellent. The one plant that did transplant and grow, only grew to 4 or 5 inches tall and never filled out with leaves. Maybe this plant takes special care beyond what I do for cabbage, kale, and broccoli, but it never did anything in my garden.
