This grew like gangbusters here in the zone 5 high country. Great taste, not bitter, not fibrous. Our go-to kale now! Will be growing again this year.
Sometimes growing greens in Florida can be tricky as the sun can really punish them. However, this Kale stood the test of weather! It bore a ton of greens and leaves and didn't stop until I let me garden overgrow for the new plantings after about a year. The greens tastes awesome too. I ate them raw or lightly sauteed and they had a sweeter, less bitter taste than the curly Kale and much better than any store bought Kale. Easy to grow too!
