Brassica oleracea Couve Tronchuda
These are a bit like a cross between kale and collards, with distinctive large rounded white-veined leaves on white stems. We’ve chosen to add these to our collection as they are said to be more heat tolerant than other kales, allowing for a longer harvest period. The leaves are also supposed to be more sweet and succulent, with a more cabbage-like flavour than other kales. This is our first full season of growing them out ourselves, so we’re excited to try them! We look forward to your feedback too!
