A beautiful purple curly kale.
I will be bringing a bunch of this kale along with other varieties, to take to the markets this weekend and will be sold in mixed kale bunches.
It is just starting to look like kohlrabi, I am hoping that I will be able to start picking some of the markets starting next week, we will see.
Purple Peacock Broccoli
I am so excited to see how these turn out, it is a cross between broccoli and kale, so it sounds like a really useful and beautiful plant.
I got my seeds from Wild Garden Seeds, here is their description from their catalog: "Our contribution to ongoing broccoli evolution; green beads, sweet purple stems, toothy red veined leaves that will make you think it’s Red Russian kale. Young leaves are salad-rate, and mature leaves are as sweet as any lightly steamed kale. Floret stems erupt first as loose heads of broccoli, followed by prodigious side shoots. These are sweet and non-biting as raw “dippers” and salad additions. This “eat everything brockali” comes from crosses between ‘Green Goliath’ broccoli and two kales. Farm Original Variety!"
