It grew quickly and abundantly here on the Central Coast of California, all this cool summer (2022) even though I didn't get around to planting it until early summer. It IS the best tasting kale, as well as being a breeze to prepare (no folds to dig dirt/bugs out of, NO MASSAGING, rib removal/slicing easy, etc.) It made DELICIOUS Portuguese Bean/Kale soup. Which is why I bought these seeds at all: this is the kale my mother (and other relatives) grew here when I was a child. As children of Azorean immigrants, my parents' generation grew what their parents knew, and cooked accordingly. To be able to make this traditional Azorean soup again, with the proper kale, has been so wonderful. (Who knew lowly KALE could be so good for the soul?!) It's really nothing like the crinkly kale wannabes that have been the only "kale" available for too many years. (Sorry, kale massaging fans...!)

We just came back from walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. These were growing in abundance in the kitchen gardens as well in in the farms. Thank for carrying this!

Grow Italian is the only company in the U.S. to carry this very rare strain of kale. Most kale varieties originate from colder regions. Being from Portugal, it would seem that this kale would do well in hotter regions.
