Hudson Valley Seed company takes breeding to an art form. All of their seeds are open pollinated on their upstate New York Farm, all heirloom, organic and never GMO. Each year they do an open call for artists to design their beautiful packaging.
The black-green foliage of this plant is nearly reptilian: deeply hued, rippled, and tough. Despite its rough appearance, it is extremely sweet and tender, a metaphor for our old dog, Kale. It was also Kale's favorite brassica, as it is for gardeners worldwide, who have given it many names: Lacinato, Cavolo Nero, Tuscan Kale, Palm Tree Kale, and Dinosaur Kale. A consistent, long-season garden companion, Dino Kale will never go extinct as long as you grow it each year.
