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.

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.

What are the pros? Sounds good

What are the cons? Not hardy at all!

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.

Review:

I had to put "South Carolina" because it won't let me do otherwise, but I actually live in the Italian Florence, in Tuscany, the land of black kale! A little tip on how we taste it here: either in vegetable zuppa (soup), a dense and savory vegetable broth with a base of onion and garlic and tiny morsels of black kale and varoius winter vegs, many types of beans and eventually cereals, and some good olive oil with toasted bread slices (if you want you can also flavor the broth with parmesan cheese crust, pork rinds or lard); in "farinata", that is the previous zuppa's leftovers in which you add cornmeal like if you wanted to prepare polenta (but with soup in place of water! So yummy) & olive oil; or you can simply have toasted bread rubbed with a garlic clove, and then you add on top lightly saut?ed black kale leaves (young leaves are the best), with just a little bit of olive oil and some black pepper it's a real treat. Don't miss this amazing italian vegetable, it's winter's best ;)

Review:

Seemed to tolerate the Florida heat very well. Started from seed in spring and ate on 7/10. Reminded our family of Kale which we love. We made a beef kinda stir fry. Started with olive oil, added garlic, sweet onions, then the cabbage nero, then the beef, salt, pepper, cooked until all was done and tender. Ate over jasmine rice. It was yummy.
