With extremely tender, medium green leaves that are broad and slightly crumpled. These are a more compact variety that form loose heads of short steamed leaves. They are tolerant of heat and cold and very rich in vitamins and minerals. The juicy leaves have a mild cabbage flavour and are delicious boiled, steamed, or as an addition to salads.
