Sounds delicious; it is one of my main vegetables and is very easy to grow,

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.

Here's how kale grows if they can overwinter:

I've had them grow a little over 6 feet in the past, but winds eventually blew them down.

Baker seeds has a variety that claims to grow 20 feet. I think I might try that.
