this stuff is dreadful first and last time to grow, it's a reminder to me only to grow what i'll eat and to leave the experimentation alone... but i just can't help it! Inedible Indigestible and tasteless.

Borecole is just another name for 'kale', is it not ?

I suppose it is very subjective. I personally like the flavour and have no problems with digesting it either. Razz

I'm sure they are related in the Brassica family but i don't think it is just another name for kale, I have curly kale growing beside it and have eatedn this steamed or stir fried not a problem but this flat leaf stuff is different altogether.

Yes, they are kale too.
Look here http://www.suttons.co.uk/Gardening/Vegetables/New+Vegetables+for+2012/Kale+Fizz+Seed+Borecole_166119.htm

And here is the curly variety

And againanother variety

I am surprised that they taste so different to your curly kale Smile
