Buying Tips

Kale is available year-round, but it shines as a cold-weather crop and is at its most flavorful and tender in the winter months. Look for dark bluish-green or dark leaves that are not wilted. Avoid those that are yellowing.

Varieties

Kale is available as mature or baby leaves. Although the most common type has curly leaves that are deep green with a tinge of blue, Russian kale has purple-red stems and a less curly leaf. Kale is also available frozen. Flowering kale consists of ruffled heads of green kale tinged with ornamental pink, purple, and white. The taste and texture are not as good as leafy kale.
