about kale ‘dwarf green curled’

A British staple introduced in the mid-1800s, this popular little brassica grows densely curled, green leaves and is on the smaller side of things. Unlike other kales, it thrives in poorer soils and windy environments, and will continue to produce tender greens even during harsh winter conditions (ideal for an english garden). It’s perfect for unsheltered, windswept plots and allotments with poor soil. (Of course, it also does brilliantly in rich soil too.)

in the records

The modern craze for Kale started in the noughties when the American Kale Association worked with publicist Oberon Sinclair, who made it the IT food by placing it in the best restaurants - which then escalated to Beyonce wearing a Kale t-shirt.
