Culinary Kale

Sales of kale have been increasing recently, and it’s a vegetable which remains in high demand. Unlike regular kale, black kale leaves appear almost black in colour. The leaves are crinkly and grow from a central stalk in long, large fronds which are narrower than on other varieties. It’s a vegetable that’s available year-round, is very high in vitamin C and potassium and is very tender when young. Black kale is planted between June and August. It’s easy to grow, and its leaves can be bunched or sold as central heads.
