NEW ARRIVAL for 2024
This kale held up wonderfully in my garden in HOT Northern California! I also like the taste better than the regular cannon-ball types. Now I've got a few starting in my garden in early November. It's definitely worth the space it takes up! Another aspect I really like is that I don't have to harvest an entire head. Its spred-out nature means you can simply remove a few leaves for a meal.
