Bred to perform well in the September to February period but is at its best from November to February. Produces good sized spears ideal for fresh market sales and prepack. Plants are large framed and suit fertile, heavy soil types.
A new variety of black cabbage breed by Tozer Seeds. Winter hardy with darker, savoyed leaves rather than conventional varietes. Flavour improves with frost. Use as baby leaf as a savoyed brassica. Mature leaves grow as a rosette rather than on a true stem.
This new variety has the best eating qualities of all the kales. The textured, ruffled leaves develop a striking contrasting white centre as they mature and have a very sweet flavour and have the crispest texture. The very ruffled leaves give great bag-fill. This variety is also suitable for multiple cuts.
Very hardy, attractive heads with slightly savoyed foliage weighing on average 1kg and maturing October to March. Very good shape and colour with excellent culinary qualities, making this variety a great choice for growers.
