Description

Explore the rich flavors of Uncle Mike's Toscano Kale, meticulously cultivated in our Woburn Greenhouses. Also known as “dinosaur kale,” this Italian variety, referred to as “Cavolo nero” or Toscano kale, stands out for its unique appearance and cold weather resilience. With its long, heavily blistered dark green leaves, almost resembling black, this kale variety yields abundantly from the center of the plant. Its flavor profile is further enhanced by frost, making it a sought-after ingredient for various culinary creations. From using young leaves as lettuce substitutes to cooking older leaves akin to cabbage, Toscano Kale adds versatility to dishes, particularly when incorporated into pasta or soups.

Maturity: 65 days
