 Lacinato Kale is an heirloom cool season annual with long upright edible basal foliage that is heavily textured and such a dark blue-green that it looks black from a distance.  The foliage is crisp and very tender with mild nutty flavor and  slightly sweet and earthy undertone.  The leaves have the best flavor after the first frost.  Best if grown in rich, consistently moist well-drained loamy soils.
