A distinctive cut leaf form of Cavolo Nero (apoplogies - the photo doesn't reflect this). Attractive blue green leaves are deeply indented, with long petioles, adding a very different texture to a mixed salad. Mild cabbage flavour.
The mature plant can be grown as spring cabbage, sown March- April onwards for overwintering.
Great for soups and stews. Beautiful and tasty.
A very easily grown plant, succeeding in full sun in a well-drained fertile preferably alkaline soil. Prefers a heavy soil. Succeeds in any reasonable soil and will tolerate quite poor conditions. Shade tolerant, growing well on a north border. Succeeds in maritime gardens.
