Kale Toscano

A popular Kale at market and probably the best for making Kale chips. Kale Toscano has long strap like leaves of blue-green colour (cooks to a green). A very healthy vegetable which has a nice tangy, slightly nutty flavour. Originates from Tuscany, Italy and also known as black cabbage or Tuscan cabbage.

Sow – November to March (cool climate).

Spacing – 40cm between plants, 50cm rows.

Kale originated in the eastern Mediterranean and Asia Minor, where it was cultivated for food beginning by 2000 BCE at the latest. Curly-leaved varieties of cabbage already existed along with flat-leaved 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.
