Kale Black Magic x 16 - Plants

  • Catalogue Code 1080-5724
  • Pack Contents: 16 Plants

Black Magic is an improved form of the Italian Black Kale and has been bred to perform better in the UK climate.

It stands up to our winter weather well, the foliage is darker and plants are more uniform with good stability and bolt resistance.

It cooks quickly, keeping it's rich dark colour. The leaves have a wonderful flavour and delicate texture.

Posh chefs love it!

The Kale Magic is not currently doing very well. Consulting "the books" it seems we have planted them out about a month too early. We assumed that if Marshalls are selling, then it's ready to be planted outside unless stated otherwise. But it may also be our lack of experience. We'll have to see what happens.


The plants came ok but have all since died despite being planted after a drink; my first order for plants from Marshalls and probably my last - poor


Plants were rather leggy on arrival, so I have potted them on. They have all taken and I will plant them out shortly.
