A vigorous kale, called thousand headed because it branches more than other kales. These plants get huge--5' tall and equally wide--and some occasionally show perennial tendencies. It's been very popular with our customers. The many branches and growing points mean that it produces more leaves than other kales, and more sweet flower stalks (like broccolini) in spring. It was traditionally used by cottagers to provide a lot of green food for livestock on a small piece of land. We sourced seed from England, and Ellen at Golden Rule Garden has reselected the strain for good flavor and smooth leaves. She grew our seed.
