Wouldn't it be great to have Lacinato kale with the classic, deep-blue-green, savoyed leaves but with bright purple stems? Hank Keogh of Avoca Seed in Corvallis, OR asked this question and then answered it himself with this beautiful new cross of Lacinato with Lacinato Rainbow. The breeding population was put through the wringers of some particularly harsh freezes, and the resulting kale is a cold-hardy champion with excellent Lacinato flavor. Eye-catching addition to a home garden or a market kale display. "Maybe love's an accident, or destiny is true, but you and I were born beneath a star of Dazzling Blue" - Paul Simon (and also Hank Keogh). 60 days. WGS *OSSI*
