Also known as Dinosaur or Tuscan Kale, this Italian heirloom dates back to the 18th century, and is an essential ingredient of caldo verde (green broth), a popular soup in Portugal. By whatever name, the sweeter, milder, blue-green, heavily crinkled strap leaves impart excellent flavor
An early variety of kale that produces copious amounts of tasty green leaves. Smooth leaves with scalloped edges. Extremely high in antioxidants and beta carotene. Kale is a real super-food! This variety is no exception and it is very flavorful.
