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.More Information:
