What are the pros? Great cooked, easy to grow
What are the cons? tastes very "green" when raw
I was disappointed when I couldn't find this stuff under the "Kale" section of rareseeds.com, but thankfully my gardening addiction kept me up into the wee hours browsing Baker Creek until I found this!Great cooked, not a huge fan raw, but once it's kissed by frost the flavor changes a bit. Fresh it tastes a lot like freshly cut grass smells.Here's a secret: If you're a prepper like me, trying to build your self-reliant, seed-saving garden, especially in a northern climate (Zone 3 here) this variety of cabbage is particularly cold hardy. Mulch it over with straw, and eat it all winter. I grow this alongside Russian (Ragged Jack) Kale and chard, in a semi-perennial garden. Much easier than your typical head cabbage, and much, much more resilient. the texture is great when cooked.
