Specially bred for texture and flavour, Kale Pentland Brig produces young crown leaves from November and in spring leafy side shoots and spears that are picked like broccoli. This upright variety grows around 60cm (24in) tall and almost as wide, with thin, gently ruffled, dark petrol-green coloured leaves.
Pentland Brig is an improved selection of an old favourite, the result of crosses between Scotch curly kale and Thousand Headed kale and was considered a new era for kale when it was first introduced. It is the only leaf and spear variety available. Looking and tasting a bit more like a cabbage than like the tightly-curled, deeply-ruffled kale varieties you may be used to. It is certainly far more delicate, sweeter and more succulent and produces side shoots that can be harvested month after month for nonstop deliciousness!
