Details

Lacinato kale 'Nero di Toscana', also called Tuscan kale, black kale, palm tree kale, or black Tuscan palm, is a headless cabbage. It forms an evergreen foliage of blue leaves, dark, pruinose, long and curved, simple, highly decorative, worn in a terminal tuft giving it the appearance of a small palm tree, erected on a stem up to 1.5 m in height. Cruciform bright yellow flowers, melliferous, fragrant, abundant, borne in terminal inflorescences above the foliage, bloom on the second year. The leaves of palm tree kale are used cooked as a leaf vegetable, to accompany meats, in soups, in vegetable pies and quiches, etc. Their cabbage taste very discrete and high digestibility make it a very interesting variety for those who resent cabbage. More generally, Brassica oleracea palmifolia is prized for its subtle and pleasant flavor. Growth of Brassica oleracea var. palmifolia is very fast and yields abundantly. Tuscan kale can also be used as an ornamental plant for its color and shape, both very original.

Sow Lacinato kale seeds in early April, 2 seeds per godet, and plant in May in final situation, in a well-worked soil enriched with decomposed manure, full sun exposure. Water if necessary. Harvest the leaves by cutting them as and when required. Too harsh for consumption, stem and midrib should be rejected. When the plant becomes too high, topping it will elicit branching. You may keep a plant for 3-4 years, after which its vigor will decrease. Extremely easy to grow. 1 seed packet
