Kale Tuscan

← Part of Gourmet Vegies Supa Vege

It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”.  There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Kale Tuscan is a heirloom from the Mediterranean.  The unusual, wrinkled, steel blue-grey leaves have a weeping habit.  The earthy and sweet leaves can be braised, wilted, fried, sauteed or eaten raw.  Rich in fibre and vitamin A.

Care: Ideally, plant into a garden bed which is fertile, enriched in organic matter, and well drained.  Mulching is recommended to help conserve water.
