Pentland Brig perennial kale
Brassica oleracea var Acephala
Considered the best tasting perennial kale
PLANT TYPE Vegetable
PLANT HABIT Evergreen perennial
A short lived, excellent tasting perennial kale. One of the most vigorous oleracea kales. Produces side shoots (like a sprouting broccoli) after the main head has been picked. Lightly curled, green leaves are tender and delicious. Produces excellent kale raab (kale flower stalks) in the spring. The leaves are very thin giving them a wide range of culinary applications. Cooks down to a silky, spinach like consistency.
RECOMMENDED LOCATION Pot, Kitchen garden
Aspect Moist full sun
Developed in England from a cross between a curly Scotch kale and Thousand Headed kale.
