[45 days] A British staple introduced in the mid-1800s, this popular little brassica sports densely curled, green leaves and a dwarf habit. Unlike other kales, it thrives in poorer soils and windy environments, and will continue to produce tender greens even during harsh winter conditions. It’s perfect for unsheltered, windswept plots and allotments with poor soil. (Of course, it also does splendidly in rich soil too.)
Also known as “'Dwarf Curlies” because its leaves are so densely curled.
This variety does exceptionally well overwintering in our mild British climate.
