This tasty grey-green kale looks good enough to plant among the flowers. The stems are purplish, and the leaves are shaped like big oak leaves and coloured a velvety grey green, far larger than normal kale .After freeze, the purple shades get richer as the taste becomes sweeter.
Purple stems and veins run across the branches, which are smooth and toothed with purple veins. In comparison to other kales, the plants grow to be medium-sized and the leaves are tender. To use in salads and other light cooking. Dip leaves in cold water after harvesting to prolong their shelf life.
