...not knowing the distinction between ornamental and edible, would one get sick? Up to this article, I thought all kale was edible. I thought maybe some varieties might be more bitter than others, but edible, nonetheless.
Here is a pic of my Redbor, I grow it in a dish pot every year, along with arugula and whatever else I find at the nursery. Nice to have fresh greens in Dec-Jan.
Thanks for the good info.
PS: I can't stand the Chik-Fil-A ad b/c of the misspelling of chicken. I shudder at the thought of the countless people who spell it "chikin", thinking it's the right way. ugh!
Yes, I have eaten the Redbor. I ran it thru my juicer and though I used tender leaves, I thought it was a little strong. However, I mixed it w/ orange juice and it was quite delicious. In the past I've chopped a couple of (again) tender leaves for salads and they seemed fine. I think the Redbor is easy to grow from seed bit I just bought a 4" plant at the nursery.
Have never eaten the really curly type. Have only planted as an ornamental and only when I find a bargain.
Thanks for the information.
I messed up and bought kale some seeds by mistake. I had never grown any before. It was the best thing I had had. I had it in salads, I had it in a bean soup and I steamed it. I am going to grow it next year too. If Redbor is strong I guess I won't bother with it and get another variety -- but four foot?? Wow! Jjust for that alone it might be worth it.
