Tronchuda Kale

         
 
5 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Couve Tonchuda) or Portuguese Kale. A bit more heat tolerant than other kales, for a longer harvest period on either end of winter season. Leaves are large, flat, rounded, similar to collard, but very large and with very prominent white veins, earning some strains a variety name of "costata," meaning "ribbed." The leaves are more succulent and the flavor is more cabbage-like than other kales. The fleshy stems or petioles are enjoyed as well. Definitely an exciting addition to an already illustrious group!

What are the pros? large leaves

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was our first year growing this one. Large beautiful leaves, mild flavor, but unfortunately is the first to be heavily laden with aphids (and in a new raised bed)_no fault of the kale. :) All time favorite remains the Blue Scotch Curled

What are the pros? Heat tolerant.

What are the cons? No cons...

Review:

More heat and drought tolerant than other varieties. I found this Baker Creek seed at a local store. Very pleased with the long summer production. The ones that were planted in the shade area last spring are still surviving without cover in mid December. Not as cold tolerant as others I would say. I may get a bit in the early spring from these with any luck...

Review:

Of the kale I planted last spring this one was most bug resistant. It has a nice flavor and I really like the kind of silvery green color! Planted with the many varieties of chard, cabbage etc. it was very nice looking!

Review:

I live in central Florida and this Kale is still going strong in our heat and humidity. It resists aphids too, which couldn't be said for the collard greens that were growing nearby. I planted it in early spring. I will grow it again for sure this fall!
