60 days. Also known as Black Palm Tree, Dinosaur, and Lacinato Kale, this loose-leafed cabbage dates back at least to the early 1800s. It has beautiful, heavily savoyed, deep black-green leaves that can be 24" long. This Italian heirloom is popular in Tuscany and central Italy for making fabulous soups and stews. This is one of the most beautiful and flavorful types you can grow, and one of the healthiest vegetables we ever tested! It can have up to three times the recommended daily vitamin A, plus loads of minerals, calcium, and vitamin C, as well as lots of fiber and protein. A truly a miraculous plant from historic Italy!
