Tuscan kale

I've grow Tuscan kale before, but this plant doesn't quite fit.  It has the dark green crinkled leaves of dinosaur or Tuscan kale, but it keeps growing.  It's not Jersey kale (walking stick kale) -- I have seeds of that, but the leaves aren't right.

It must just be a robust Tuscan kale plant that has kept growing in this mild spring and early summer.

Happily, the leaves are tough enough to deter the cabbage white butterfly caterpillars, too.

  1. How is the taste of this Kale compared to Jersey Kale? It is my new favorite veggie!

  2. Janet, I apparently didn't sow any Jersey kale, or if I did, it didn't make it to maturity, so I don't know what it tastes like.

    I'm fond of all kales, but I think Siberian kale and redbor are my favorites- I like the robust flavor of Tuscan kale, too!

  3. The plant does look strong and display prominence in any garden..

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
