It seems these little guys will be (widely?) available this Fall in the US.

I have to say they don't look *that* different from young/baby shoots of kale of different varieties I've seen offered on occasion in Farmers' Markets IIRC...but those would have the longer leaves of kale rather than the round ones here or the tight-packed tiny inner head (like sprouts).

I will have no trouble trying these if and when they show up around here. Thank you for sharing.

I just don't want to look back and think "I could have eaten that."

Unsupervised, rebellious, radical agrarian experimenter, minimalist penny-pincher, and adventurous cook. Crotchety, cantankerous, terse curmudgeon, non-conformist, and contrarian who questions everything!

The best thing about a vegetable garden is all the meat you can hunt and trap out of it!
