Brassica oleracea acephala

Put some height and texture into your vege garden with this striking, gourmet vegetable. Good on looks and great on flavour. A strong Italian heritage variety.

Leaves can be chopped and used like cabbage or kale – just remove the thick central rib first. Super-yum sauteed in olive oil with garlic and chilli. Perfect ingredient for slow-cooked winter dishes. Equally good in a quick stir-fry or salad. Very nutritious… and delicious.
