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? resistant to aphids

What are the cons? none

Review:

This plant is still thriving despite cold high winds and no water for over a month. I was impressed by the resistance to disease and aphid infestation especially when aphids devoured my Russian Kales that grew immediately next to these. This Kale was prolific and easy to care for and is great steamed in soups, stews and casseroles. Of course the Kale became to bitter to eat raw as soon as the weather turned warm. I will definitely grow again.

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.
