Seeds per pack; approx. 150

Kale is a trendy “superfood” but it is also a very old crop. It is a type of cabbage known as ‘Leaf Cabbage’ because it doesn’t form a head like ‘Headed Cabbage’. Kale is actually thought to be more similar to wild cabbage. It is known to have been cultivated in the Eastern Meditaranian region from at least 4000 years ago.
Kale produces sweet flavoured leaves from late summer through to early spring.
Nero Di Toscana is a very attractive traditional Italian variety with dark green almost black leaves that are blistered like a savoy cabbage. Also known as Cavolo Nero(Black Cabbage).
