ABSTRACT
Kale, or Borecole, a hardy leafy plant grown primarily as a vegetable and forage crop. Kale has a high nutritive value with appreciable amounts of the vitamins A and C and the mineral calcium. There are several types of kale, ranging in height from less than two feet (60 cm) to nine feet (270 cm). Among the types cultivated are curly kale and Scotch kale, both of which have deeply crinkled leaves, and collards, with somewhat smoother leaves.
