Lacinato Dinosaur Kale Seeds


Italian heirloom with blue-green leaves loaded with flavor. This lovely Italian heirloom dates back to the 18th century. Sweeter, milder, heavily crinkled blue-green strap leaves impart excellent flavor.


The leaves are very long and slender, reaching 2 feet long but just a few inches wide, with a heavily savoyed texture that looks almost bubbled. Depending on the time of year and the temperature, they range from blue-green to darkest forest-green to nearly black.


Young leaves are harvested from underneath, at the base. Expect to do plenty of harvesting, too, over the long season of this robust plant! 


Enjoy fresh, blanched, broiled, or braised.
