About lacinato kale
Occupying a rarified spot as a nutritional "superfood," lacinato kale is a dark, leafy green that packs a delicious earthy flavor and vitamins for days with each bite.
Lacinato kale, also referred to as Tuscan kale, emerged in Italy in the late 18th century from its namesake region. Lacinato is a mainstay in Italian cooking, figuring prominently in minestrone soup and riboletta, Tuscan bread, and vegetable soup. Lacinato kale is a member of the kale family but has a very different look than its more commonly found cousin, curly kale. Lacinato kale has large dark green, almost blue, leaves with an embossed texture that explains why it is sometimes referred to as dinosaur kale for its resemblance to the leathery skin.
Lacinato kale grows upwards of three feet in height with large leaves that belie their sweet, delicate taste. This leafy vegetable holds a special place in gardeners' hearts for its unique size, hearty growth patterns, and relatively quick growth period. Historical records show that Thomas Jefferson was an early adopter of this heirloom kale variety, planting it in his gardens at Monticello in the late 18th century.
