Producing attractive dark green leaves with a definite savoy, ONYX is a true Cavolo Nero or Black Cabbage type. Full of antioxidants beneficial for our health, kale is a popular ingredient in salad mixes to boost nutritive content. ONYX is suited to year round production but needs to be managed carefully during Winter when all kale varieties are susceptible to disease infection. With a mild brassica/mustard flavour, ONYX provides another element to salad mixes in regards to the leaf colour, shape and texture and has good volume to assist in filling out bags.
