 Dwarf Scotch Kale is an exceptionally hardy shorter variety with a compact growth habit – a good selection for windy sites. The leaves have a white rib and are lightly curled. A handsome looking, robust growing, nutritious plant with a mild taste. First noted in the early 1860’s. Kale contains higher levels of beta-carotene than any other green vegetable, and is also high in vitamin C and calcium. Collards are not far behind. All are easy to grow, vigorous, nutritious, resistant to cold, and easy to harvest and prepare. And the greens even get sweeter after frost. Follow along with this handy
