What are the pros? Once established very prolific

What are the cons? Aphids love it too!

Review:

This is families fav green. Tastier than kale, more flavorful than cabbage. Multifunctional as salad, in soups, cabbage rolls (blanched first), baked for chips, sauted, chopped in scrambled eggs. Bit of a collector of aphids, use diatimatious earth. Grown for 10 years.

Review:

Yeap as another fellow mentioned Baker Creek use a fancy name for this type of Kale. I wonder at first but It just look like lacinato, or dinosaur kale I had been growing in my garden for years. Please Correct me if I'm wrong.

What are the pros? Tender, tastey, survivor

What are the cons? none

Review:

This also survived a very tough spring with hot winds and several hailstorms and flooded garden, along with scarlet kale. They took a beating that the tomatoes and peppers could not (planted those 3 x this spring) Will plant more of these kales and will try others, in the future. Like the scarlet kale, the Dinosaur Kale was started indoors, broadcast method, thinnings used as mircogreens until transplant. DH did the transplanting and i had to chuckle that he just put the entire bunch in the ground, as a clump, when i had envisioned spacing them apart. Now, after the storms, i think that this 'clump method' did far better than if it had been done 'my way'. Mild taste, tender, just lovely in a kale salad with a little scarlet kale. This is a real fave. I cannot see much reason for us to struggle with head cabbage, after trying this. Will look very nice in front of a short hedge of scarlet kale. Does well indoors, too.

versatile and simple

What are the pros? Versatile

What are the cons? Mine got a bit lanky

Review:

Once these got established, they are easy to maintain. I have heavy pest pressure on all fronts, but with regular care these fare well. Love that the leaves can store well bagged in the fridge for quite a while. These plants have spanned all season, and are now so tall as that some need bamboo stakes after rain and wind. I do have shorter days due to tall trees on all sides of property, but they still fare well. Versatile kale for soups, chips, or sauteed. Not too strong.
