Nero di Toscana, Tuscan kale
Brassica oleracea var. acephala subvar. laciniata
This extremely decorative variety of kale is the southern brother of the nordic spring cabbage. It is very hardy and robust with dark green leaves that can appear almost black with a blistered surface. From autumn until spring, you can harvest the leaves and use raw or slightly cooked in everything from soups to smoothies. This vitamin packed super food tastes great and keeps the whole family healthy; we highly recommend it. Height reaches 120 cm.
