Largest of the Lacinato dinosaur kale types. Take advantage of the market popularity of Lacinato kale with this exceptionally uniform and productive variety. Black Magic’s leaves are large and wide, straight and resist curling inward. It has a dark and consistent color, along with an open habit that makes harvesting easier than other OPs. The plants from our trial had sweeter flavor and vigorous regrowth, and all were uniform and high quality. There was also far less bug damage than other varieties trialed.
