Kale – Cavolo nero

Cavolo nero

Brassica oleracea acephala

Approx 250 seeds


Put some height and texture into your vege garden with this striking, gourmet vegetable. Good on looks and great on flavour. A strong Italian heritage variety.

Leaves can be chopped and used like cabbage or kale – just remove the thick central rib first. Super-yum sauteed in olive oil with garlic and chilli. Perfect ingredient for slow-cooked winter dishes. Equally good in a quick stir-fry. Very nutritious… and delicious.

Sow seed in trays first on a sunny windowsill, then plant out in full sun in a good, fertile soil. Keep well watered.
