1000 head kale is an heirloom variety of kale. The variety dates back to at least 19th century seed houses in France, believed to be sourced from Kings Seed in England. Our father was introduced to this variety while he was working in Kenya. It is the most common and popular green and variety grown in Kenya, referred to as Kisuma Wiki or suma wiki in Kiswahili. This variety is a flatter leaf kale, that stays tender throughout its giant growth, where leaves can grow up to 3 feet long. It’s both cold and heat tolerant.
