Description

A diverse genepool mix of 17 oleracea kales & their crosses. Nick Routledge trialed the 17 kales collected on our 2007 Seed Ambassadors trip & this is what happened the next spring. This grex contains a lot of very interesting diversity of kales not available in the US, not just curly green kales. A combination of Hoj Amager Grunkohl (DK), Madeley (UK), Westphalian (UK), Westland Winter (UK), Westländer Winter (DE), Asparagus Kale (IR, UK), 1,000 Headed kale (DE), Roter Krauskohl (DE), Altmarker Braun (DE), Baltic Red (SE), Blonde Butter of Jalhay (BE), Butterkohl (DE), Nicki’s Cut’N’Come Again (IE), Shetland (UK), Hellerbutter Kohl (CH), Cavolo Nero di Toscana (IT), & Ostfriesische Palm (CH). The resulting mix contains the most incredibly vigorous kales we have ever seen – some plants grew 4′ tall in 8” of potting soil on top of some serious hardpan topsoil. If you like a mix of diverse kales in your life, this is it.
