80-90 days — Also known as 'Dinosaur Kale', 'Black Cabbage', 'Black Kale', 'Black Palm', 'Cavolo Palmizio', 'Nero di Toscana', 'Tuscan Black Palm Cabbage' or simply, 'Tuscan Kale'..

A primitive, open variety of kale with dark bluish-green, long, narrow, deeply savoyed leaves.  The plants reach two to three feet tall and will provide a continuous supply of tasty leaves if you pick from the bottom up.  It is cold hardy and the flavors become sweeter and more complex after a hard frost.

This heirloom has a history dating back to at least the 18th Century from the Tuscany region of Italy.  It was commercially introduced into the United States back in the 1980s by Renee Shepherd.  Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 250 seeds.

Best Kale Chips Ever
So easy to germinate, and fast growing, too. And the thick, blue-green leaves make for the absolute BEST kale chips - the kids gobble them up as fast as I make them. The plants last well into late fall, and it can be overwintered in the Midwest if grown in a cold frame/hoop house. This variety is a must have in any garden.
