A true Siberian kale! The Brassica napus varieties are more tender and milder in flavour than the traditional European kale, B.oleracea, which makes the younger raw leaves better for use in salads. Older leaves are used steamed, stir fried, in pies and green smoothies. In spring the flower head sprouts are used like broccoli raab, raw or steamed. A tall, heavy yielding plant with tender curly, blue-green leaves. Frost and snow improve the flavour. 500 seeds.
