Same here. I grow the dwarf curly. It survives our insane summers and never gets tough or bitter. It lasts for a full year before turning into a tree and getting replaced.

I am now growing Dwarf Curly blue Vates for a 3rd year..not sure why.  I can’t do it.  It’s tough, just not into cooking it.  It grows like a weed...

My kale bolts too easily. So I grow it as an ornamental plant.

Kale is always given space in my SFG.  I use it mainly in green smoothies.
