Seasonality: Year Round
Also referred to as Black, Tuscan and Dino Kale, this Lacinato Kale is actually a dark grey bluish-green, has small, tender leaves when compared to curly green kale. Served uncooked in a salad, this variety has a citrusy flavor with notes of pine; when cooked, black kale has a nutty-broccoli taste. This kale is packed with nutrients, though it cooks much quicker then curly kale and is much more subtle as a flavor additive when used in soups or stews.
Kale turns sweeter in a light frost, so is most flavorful in fall and winter. Avoid washing kale until just before use since it will hasten spoilage. Always store refrigerated.
