Also known as borecole, this beautiful Italian curly variety of kale grows an abundance of dark tasty blistery leaves. Although late maturing, this eye catching variety is worth the wait!

Health & Culinary Notes

  • Eat young leaves raw or add older leaves to soups and quiches.
  • With a little olive oil, salt and a warm oven, why not try kale “chips” for a healthy snack.
  • Extremely nutritious, an excellent source of beta carotene, calcium and vitamins E, C and K.
