Kurly Kale – 500 Grams
Sativa Seeds from Italy (GMO-FREE DECLARATION)
Kurly kale is the most common type found in your supermarket. This Dutch variety is truly one of the densest and curliest varieties.
Kurly Kale is a rustic plant that can grow to a height up to 70-80 cm. It has dark green leaves and a very bubbly shape.
It has a pale to dark green color with large, wrinkled leaves and long stems. It is hardy and fibrous when it is fully mature, and tender enough to be used as a raw salad green when it is young.
Growing this kale is easy: it can remain on the field during winter and tastes even better and sweeter after a touch of frost. It can be collected from the base of the plant and boiled or used in soups.
Kale has found its way into homes and restaurant menus alike. It is considered a “superfood” because it is packed with many nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and beta-carotene.
It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world and has significant amounts of antioxidants that can help prevent cancer. It can reduce inflammation, being able to fight arthritis, asthma, and other inflammatory illnesses. It is low in calories, high in fiber, and has zero fat.
Kale is a versatile green vegetable and can be used raw in salads, sautéed/steamed/braised, or roasted into crunchy kale chips. It is also used in soups, smoothies, salads, and much more. The tough stems and ribs should be removed before the greens are cooked.
Kale grows tender and full of flavor when conditions are favorable.
There are different varieties of Kale, from the scaly-looking Dinosaur Kale (also called Tuscan Kale) and Kurly Kale.
Some varieties display shades of red and purple, like the Russian Red Kale.
