50 - 60 days Frost tolerant
A very flavorful and personal favorite of ours! This Italian heirloom is good in short season areas with cool nights. Slow to bolt. This delicious dark colored, blue-green kale is not only flavorful but also unique and prehistoric looking in the garden! as well as on the plate! Leaves become brighter and more tasty after frost. Grows to 2-3 Feet. Good for cooking greens or bunching. Use for salads and light cooking, sauteed and roasted. A true classic flavor!
