Brassica oleracea Gongylodes

Description

A huge Czech variety growing from 5kg to 25kg.

Tender and mild flavoured with crisp white flesh, the greens can also be used like Kale or winter greens.

Harvesting seed

Seeds can be gathered by cutting entire branches or by harvesting whole plants. Because of this species’ tendency to shatter, the harvested material should be placed on drop cloths or in containers to prevent seed loss.

Branches of mature fruits can be threshed by rubbing the pods between one’s hands.

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark and dry place.
