Kale – Cavolo Rainbow (Organic)
Red, purple and blue-green leaf colours with slight ruffling on the edges, cold resistant and vigourous. A Frank Morten cross from Wild Garden Seed in Oregon, USA of Cavolo Nero ‘Lacinato’ and Redbor hybrid kale. The majority of the plants have savoyed, blue-green leaves with ruffled edges, others are more purple or more white, some have more ruffling and others less. When grown outdoors the colours will intensify with the cold. It is a hardy and very beautiful kale tasting sweet and aromatic.
We planted ‘Lacinato rainbow’ in our 2018 trial and relished in this diverse variety that tastes amazing and is a bit more funky and also cold-resistant than the usual Cavolo Nero
