Nero di Toscana 

 

Brassica oleracea L.

 

 

Description

A great selection from the Tuscan ecotype. It is also called Palmetto (Palm tree-like) or Penna (Feather) cabbage because the leaves remain constantly open and curve to form an arch. A hardy plant that grow to a height of 28 - 32 inches. Once cultivated both the large and small leaves (baby leaves) are used. The thick leaves are dark green in color and bubbled. They are great blanched or used in soups. Like all other leafy vegetables, the Black Tuscan Kale should be harvested towards the end of autumn after it has been touched by a frost which enhances its taste and nutritional properties.
