KALE, Vates Blue Curled

Vates Blue Curled, a Scottish dwarf type of kale, is one of the most dependable and flavourful varieties. The narrow leaflets are blue-green and finely curled. Vates Blue Curled is tolerant of both cold and hot temperature extremes – slow to bolt and withstands yellowing in cold weather. The leaves are tender and sweet after a light frost. This great year-round performer is easy to grow, vigorous, nutritious and really easy to harvest and prepare. The leaves have a zesty flavour and are delicious when steamed. Use in salads or as garnish. Vates Blue Curled makes a great addition to your home garden greens collection.
