ORNAMENTAL CABBAGE | BRASSICA
Oh how ruffly! Kale are also known as ornamental cabbage or by the scientific name, Brassica. They are most often sought after for their magnificent leaf texture and coloring in shades of white, pink, lavender and violet.
The ornamental types of kale can be edible but have a much bitter taste than their common relatives of broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. What makes them differ from regular cabbage is their central leaves do not form a distinct head.
Although this is prime season for kale, we are able to source most color variations year-round.
