Kale ‘Cavolo Nero’
A great multipurpose kale – young, purple-tinged, green leaves are tender enough for salads, while great cooked any number of ways at any size. As the weather gets colder the leaves tend to become purplier & lose a little succulence but this firmer texture suits the season – they need a little more cooking & are robust enough to take to the stronger flavours such as chilli & garlic. Plants grow to around 60cm, are happily harvested using a cut & come again approach & will grow well through the winter. Can grow up to 4ft tall.
