Tronchunda Kale Seeds
(Couve tonchuda) or Portuguese Kale. A bit more heat tolerant than other kales, for a longer harvest period on either end of winter season. Leaves are large, flat, rounded, similar to collard, but very large and with very prominent white veins, earning some strains a variety name of “costata,” meaning “ribbed.” The leaves are more succulent, and the flavor is more cabbage-like than other kales. The fleshy stems or petioles are enjoyed as well.
