Tozer Seeds offer a range of brightly coloured kales with fantastic leaf textures and unique eating qualities. All these new kales require only very light cooking and are well suited to modern culinary methods including stir-fry, steam and microwave. Cultivation of the new Tozer kales is identical to traditional kales, using the same sowing dates and spacing. They are very versatile, with all varieties being suitable for harvest from young plants to full-grown mature leaf. We also have some improved hybrid curly kale types and some fantastic Cavolo Nero (black cabbage) varieties.
Black Magic is an excellent OP selection of cavolo nero. It has improved winter hardiness, darker more savoyed leaves and more uniform plant habit than traditional selections. Ideal for use in baby leaf productions but also suitable for pre-pack and processing.
Ebony F1 is our latest cavolo nero variety. It has a good upright plant shape with dark leaves which produce good yields. This variety has demonstrated good cold and bolt tolerance and is winter hardy. Like Cobra, it produces a good second growth after harvest. Ebony is a versatile variety with leaves suited for both pre-pack and processing.
Mamba F1 has a very upright plant habit with uniform wide leaves, high yields and excellent vigour. It is an ideal variety to grow for processing and has improved cold and wind tolerance. Mamba has tolerance to foliar diseases and is good for second harvests.
Black Jack F1 has very uniform, thin, dark and well textured leaves which are perfect for bunching and also help ensure the plant is less susceptible to wind damage compared to OP types. This plant has a neat, rosette shaped uniform plant habit which is easy to harvest.
Arun is the first F1 hybrid green curly kale from Tozer. Particularly suitable for bunching due to the long petiole and refined leaf shape. This variety has excellent yields and field performance under a range of conditions.
Tender colourful, speciality for bunching and baby leaf. Leaves are flat with red purple / red veins, colour intensifies with the cooler temperature.
