Kale - Lacinato - Brassica oleracea (Acephala group)
Biennial Heirloom. This kale is heavily savoyed (bumpy) with dark green, almost black, leaves. The strap-shaped leaves are not curly like regular kale, and add an interesting texture and color to salads. If using in soup, add kale at the end to avoid overcooking. This variety is a primitive, open kale traced to Tuscan origins.
Did You Know? Kale is a great source of vitamins A, C, and K, and minerals, containing twice the amount of vitamin C as an equivalent portion of orange juice and more calcium than milk!
