Product Description

Kale - Lucinato, Tuscan

Dinosaur Kale

This impressive 18th-century Italian heirloom produces 15 inch deep blue-green leaves with crpe looking crinkles, which gives rise to its other common name, dinosaur kale. Extraordinarily nutritious, high in vitamins A, C, and K with a nutty flavor.

The taste becomes sweeter after a hard frost. Leave a plant or two for harvest through the winter. Cutting the stem near the base will often give rise to new sprouts in spring.
