About our cavolo nero

Cavolo Nero, also known as Tuscan kale or black kale, is a type of kale that originated in Italy and has been a staple in Italian cuisine for centuries. It is particularly associated with the region of Tuscany, where it has been cultivated and consumed for generations. It is characterised by its dark, deep green leaves that have a bumpy texture and an elongated shape. The leaves are quite sturdy and have a slightly bitter flavour compared to other types of kale. The plant’s stems are tough and fibrous, and the leaves are typically torn or cut away from the stems before cooking.

Cavolo Nero is highly nutritious, like other members of the kale family. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals like calcium and iron. Its dark green color indicates a high content of antioxidants. It is well-suited to cooler climates and is often grown in the autumn and winter months. It can withstand frost and even improves in flavour after being exposed to colder temperatures.
