Portuguese or kale forms large, waxy mint-colored leaves on thick, fleshy petioles. The leaves form a very loose head. Harvest most of the whole plant, up to 7 lbs. The leaves are a favorite for Portuguese kale soup “Caldo Verde”. Beira is an easy-to-grow hybrid, both for spring and fall plantings. Direct seeding helps avoid tipburn. Great to juice! Makes a much more juice and is sweeter and milder as compared to curly kale.
