The beautiful leaves of the kale plant provides an earthy flavor and more nutritional value for fewer calories than almost any other food around. Although it can be found in markets throughout the year, it is in season from the middle of winter through the beginning of spring when it has a sweeter taste and is more widely available. There are two sorts of kale:
Curly kale has ruffled leaves and a fibrous stalk and is usually deep green in color. It has a lively flavor with a delicious bitter peppery taste.
Dinosaur kale is the common name for the kale variety known as Tuscan kale. It features dark blue-green leaves. It has a slightly sweeter and more delicate taste than curly kale.
