Lacinato, Dinosaur, Tuscan, or Italian Kale has very dark green or blue-green leaves that are heavily crinkled or blistered (savoyed) instead of curled. The leaves have a rich, tender taste and are softer than curly green kales. Can be harvested at baby or adult stage. Delicious raw or cooked. Light frosts increase the sweetness of the leaves.
