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.
