Kale and Collards
Dark leafy greens wonderful for salads, braising, stews and smoothies.
Black Tuscan Kale
An Italian heirloom, Tuscan or Lacinato kale has a long tradition in Tuscan cuisine, where it can be found in nearly every garden. Thomas Jefferson grew it in his garden at Monticello.
Dark blue-green to black leaves with a heavily crinkled or blistered texture inspire one of its common names, Dinosaur kale. Tender leaves have a softer texture than curly green kales. Thought by many to be the tastiest kale.
Red Russian Kale
One of the hardiest and most tender kales, originally from Siberia and brought to Canada by Russian traders around 1885.
Also known as Ragged Jack kale. Large plants with flat, frilly, tender and very sweet leaves, with beautiful purple stems. The flavor sweetens and colors intensify after frost. Winter hardy.
Pretty enough to plant among the flowers!
Cascade Glaze Collard Greens
Only a few left!
Cascade Glaze, a Pacific Northwest resurrection of the nearly 200-year-old southern, wavy leafed classic Green Glaze, expresses a recessive gene for a waxy, glossy leaf texture (like chard), which tolerates colder weather and may deter cabbage worms.
It has exceptional flavor and very sweet leaf stems, which cook faster than traditional collards. Sweet and tender flavor, especially in fall and winter.
