Tuscan Lacinato (Nero di Toscana) Kale

60 days. The rustic, pebbled kitchen gardens of Tuscany gave birth to this unique heirloom Kale, AKA Dinosaur Kale, prized for its phenomenal color, size and leaf texture. There is something primeval about Lacinato's statuesque plants: huge, strapping leaves atop tall, sturdy stalks that can reach as high as 3'. This dramatic Kale is prized by Italian cooks, possibly because the heavily savoyed, crinkled leaves grow as long as 18". The leaf color is practically indescribable, but deep grey/blue/green with a silvery sheen comes close. The flavor of Lacinato is tangy and sweet. (OP.)
