Kale, Tuscan (black), organic
There are few leaves more nutritious then our organic Black Tuscan Kale. Grown in genuine soil without the use of any chemicals this crop gives you all the goodness without any harmful substances. Freshly harvested every morning you simply can’t find any better.
As Kale is a leafy rather than a headed brassica, it is closer to the original wild cabbage than any other type in this family and therefore probably one of the oldest forms. Until the end of the Middle Ages Kale was one of the most common green vegetables in all of Europe. Curly leafed varieties of cabbage already existed along with flat leafed varieties in Greece in the 4th century BC. These forms, which were referred to by the Romans as Sabellian Kale, are considered to be the ancestors of modern kales.
Today one may differentiate between varieties according to the low, intermediate, or high length of the stem, with varying leaf types. The leaf colours range from light green through green, dark green and violet-green to violet-brown.
Kale is very nutritious and one of the numerous superfoods we grow. For details please see the following chapters.
This Black Kale variety is an old-fashioned heirloom from Tuscany, Italy. It has a beautiful texture and a very delicious mild flavour.
