Before it was dubbed America’s “superfood,” kale was an obscure green that could only be found at farmers’ markets, independent health food stores and, of course, at Boston Organics. Kale has become so popular that it’s almost hard to remember a time before it was the ultimate emblem of healthy food.
But now that kale is everywhere (even McDonald’s is planning to add kale to their menu), there are so many different kinds of kale out there, it’s hard to keep them all straight.
Here’s a quick guide to the most common varieties of kale we carry, so the next time it shows up in your organic grocery delivery you won’t be asking yourself “What the kale is that?!”
