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? 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!

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.
