Kale Dwarf Green Curled is one of the most beautiful Kale we grow. A Heritage variety introduced before 1865. This compact curly Kale is ideal for growing in windswept gardens or on poor soils. Kale 'Dwarf Green Curled' produces attractive, dark, tightly frilled leaves of excellent quality. Like all Kale, this variety is exceptionally hardy, standing well in the harshest of weather.

Often a neglected crop, but one that is increasing in popularity due to its nutritional properties. Kale (also known as borecole) tolerates cold weather better than most other brassicas and is relatively free of pests and diseases, although it should be netted against birds. It will also tolerate a lightly shaded position. Always pick the leaves when they are young and tender.

Now well accepted as a so-called “superfood” due to the many health benefits from its very high nutritional value, Kale has enjoyed a surge in popularity as a great way to improve the diet.
