What type of kale to plant?
Hi everyone, happy St. Patrick's day! In the spirit of green superfoods, I decided to grow some kale this year, but am wondering what variety to plant.
Recently, when I tried some dinosaur kale it was quite bitter and my kids wouldn't eat it. Then I bought a bag of kale from Trader Joe's and it wasn't bitter at all (don't know what kind it was, but it had ruffled leaf edges). I've searched the forums and there are many plugs for dino kale, but my tasting experience of it hasn't been so good... Is it always bitter, or were my 2 (separate) batches from the farmer's market just an abnormality?
Interestingly enough, the spinach I grow at home is not bitter at all (doesn't have that "iron tang" that some storebought spinach has), so I'm wondering whether it's something in the soil. Thanks so much!!
