'Tuscan Black Kale', 'Cavolo Nero' Brassica oleracea

We enjoy this Kale in Hunza Pie - a real foodie throw back to our Hippy, Surfie Days. Also Maggie Beer has a great pie recipe as well using this Kale. It is growing in our homemade compost and a little of Tim's Horse Compost/Manure.

I have been growing both for many years. There is one Tuscan Kale (Cavolo Nero) in the bag at the back that is still productive after 3 years, and they get very little damage. The Mexican Tarragon is a very good Herb as well as the flowers being a Beneficial Insect Target.

Dianne I ordered some seeds of the Tuscan cabbage, along with some Mexican Tarragon seeds for their intense licorice/aniseed taste, and they handle our hot summers.
