Asparagus Kale grown in 2019. An old variety, listed in Vilmorin’s The Vegetable Garden in 1885. Reputed to be one of the tastiest of kales, and is treated more like a broccoli. The young leaves can be eaten over the winter, but it is better left until the spring when the young flower shoots can be broken off, blanched and eaten like asparagus. Relatively dwarf, hardy and prolific. Grown by the Blackthorne Trust.
