Ancient variety from the UK was mentioned in Vilmorin’s The Vegetable Garden in 1885 as a productive, multi-branching type that also goes by the name “branching borecole”. Vilmorin also mentions that the variety originally hailed from western France. Peter Miller of Kings Seed mentioned that Thousandhead kale was long appreciated in the UK as a fodder crop, but it has been re-discovered as a tasty culinary variety. Leaves are smooth with lightly curled edges for easier pest management. Those who have struggled with cabbage worms understand how caterpillars love to hide in the folds of curly kale leaves. This variety is just lightly curled at the edges, making caterpillars easier to spot and treat! This seed was sourced from Kings Seed of England; the King family has been in the seed business for centuries. John Kemp King began selling seeds in 1793; his grandson Ernest William began Kings Seeds, and it has been in business for 130 years! Kings Seed is the last remaining horticultural wholesale seed house left in England and still a family affair. Miller has worked for the company 55 years, and his grandfather also worked for Kings since 1913!

What are the pros? fast grow, great flavor

What are the cons? nothing to dislike

Review:

Can't be beat for flavor and has been fast growing, though not as large (yet) as the seed pak pic. Planted seeds in a hoop house on March 27 in a 20# tub and have been taking leaf cuttings continuously for breakfast stir fry since 2nd week of May. It's been an exceptionally wet/overcast/cool spring here in NorCal this year and we're really impressed by this'n
