What are the pros? Tender, heat tolerant, yum
What are the cons? None so far
I have been growing a number of kales in the past several years. This is currently my favorite. The leaves are so tender and the flavor is so good even when mid May temperatures have been getting around 90 F for several weeks. The cabbage loopers are getting my other Brassica oleracea cultivars, and many of the others are bolting, but not these. I made a wonderful kale salad tonight for dinner. The leaves were clean, perfect and bug free. I washed them in my salad spinner and saw no bugs or dirt come off in the rinse water. Even the stems are tender. This is a very impressive vegetable! ... and it is so beautiful to boot.
