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.

What are the pros? Thrives all winter in desert.

What are the cons? Nothing really

Review:

I planted 2 of this variety in a pot last fall in Sept. It was still growing and giving me yield before it bolted mid April. I picked it for soup all winter. I'll be planting more this year!

What are the pros? Great taste, doesn't bolt

What are the cons? Succumbs to late bugs

Review:

This is an excellent kale - perfect for soup and very productive. My only complaint is that they are decimated by bugs by early Sept, but by that time we have plenty in the freezer.

What are the pros? Taste, Colour, Texture

What are the cons? Bugs love it

Review:

Grew these in Toronto Ontario on a balcony in low rise containers. Hot full sun, water once a day, twice on heatwaves. All items I grow are in containers and all my reviews are bias towards that. This kale is tasty and i prefer it over the other wavy versions. I find its taste is that of a family member of brassica, but almost like broccoli. gave some to a friend and their plants got infected with aphids, white flies and cabbage months. I just noticed some moths on mine and plucked the caterpillars when i saw them. I would recommend this if you want a bit more girth from your greens and are curious for a lettuce alternate on a sandwich. still a kale but different.

What are the pros? Easy, Nutritious, Productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is my absolute favorite veggie to grow here in Hawaii. Whenever I have moved and started a new garden, these are the first seeds I plant. They grow great here year-round. I like how there are no curls for slugs and aphids to hide out in. If do we get some aphids, I can see them right away, anfd give them a little spray with diluted neem oil, and we're good to go again. I add the leaves to EVERYTHING, stir-fry, pasta sauce, soups, etc. The flavor is so tasty and neutral I use it in the place of spinach all the time. Oh, and kale chips too!

What are the pros? a no fail crop

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was an easy crop to grow and neglect with no ill effects after it is well on it way in the garden. Used for soups, raw in salads and an inexpensive source of greens for blended drinks, although it has overpowering taste if not tempered with fruit in the mix. A few years ago my husband potted a big garden specimen and dragged it into a sunroom with temps of 50 -60F throughout the winter. With water, bit of fertilizer and enjoying a sunny window, it grew another 4.5 feet and put out large pannicles of pale yellow blossoms, continuing all summer. I've just cleaned all the seed pods and have a great abundance of seed which I'll soon start indoors. Oh, I forgot to mention, that it had spent the previous winter behind glass next to the kitchen brick wall. On sunny days I'd remove the window and shovel in enough snow to bury the kale, swiss chard, raddichio, dandelion and mache. January 27th, I picked an armload of swiss chard, kale leaves and mache. What a feast!
