The internal leaves are pale yellow, tender, and sweeter than the external leaves, which are dark green. Kale is a popular vegetable and a member of the cabbage family. It is a cruciferous vegetable like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, and Brussels sprouts. There are many different types of kale. The leaves can be green or purple and have either a smooth or curly shape. The most common type of kale is called curly kale or Scots kale, which has green and curly leaves and a hard, fibrous stem. This is coming with a total of 33 calories, 6 grams of carbs (2 of which are fiber), and 3 grams of protein. Kale contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat in it is an omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid. Given its incredibly low-calorie content, kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods in existence. Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet.

Sunlight – it can handle full sun to part shade. 

Watering – Water your kale plants regularly so the soil stays evenly moist. Along with cool temperatures, moist soil helps to keep the kale leaves sweet and crisp, rather than tough and bitter.

Plant Care – Kale plants like to grow in a rich soil that’s high in organic matter with a slightly acidic soil pH.

Caution –  It is susceptible to black rot and clubroot, as well as aphids, cabbage loopers, cabbageworm, cutworms, flea beetles, and slugs. The best defense is to monitor the plants often for signs of eggs or feeding, such as holes in the leaves. Treat problems as soon as they arise.
