Curly Kale is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cold hardy, prolific, great taste! Zone 7A. I put in 24 Bonnie Curly Kale plants in the fall. They all survived and produced an abundance of beautiful leaves. THEN that cold of the winter of 2017 hit and we got to -1 degree Fahrenheit, which is unusually cold for us. The cold killed everything else in the garden. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, even collards were killed. NOT the Kale! Went to pick some for soup and literally had to knock pieces of ice off the leaves. Very few leaves experienced any cold burn/scald or negative effects. It's now February and I've just gotten in from picking again. I noticed that I have NEW GROWTH where I cut off prior stalks towards the bottom of the stems! This plant takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I'm going to see how long I can keep this group producing but will certainly be putting more of these curly kale's in my garden next fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in Zone 6a. This type of kale will grow amazingly fast all summer - even better with lots of rain. But, it will not grow once the temps cool. Really nothing after Sept/Oct. I've asked Bonnie Plants about this & they were shocked that it would not grow in cool/cold temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winterbor is returning to my garden: We planted 6 plants in early spring and ate off of them for almost a full year. If you simply pull the mature leaves from the bottom, then this plant will grow up to 4' tall. Ours looked like miniature palm trees towards the end of their useful life and were well worth the time and space!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great producer: Last year was the first year I grew kale. It was a pleasant surprise. I put out 4 plants (can't remember what happened to the one) but harvested all summer from the remaining 3. It is Feburary in Kansas, and I just harvested the last of the kale. it has been snowed on, rained on, and even some high 60 degree days but it has hung in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant: We planted 18 plants last fall and fed the neighborhood. An absolutely delicious and prolific plant. We also were able to freeze the excess and it was still wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I planted 6 of these in April. We cannot keep up with their growth! The six plants were in one half of ta 4' x 8' raised bed and they now extend 6-8" over the sides of the bed and have grown into each other. I basically stopped doing anything to/for the remaining 4 plants and they are STILL growing. There is no exaggeration when I say they are every bit of 2' tall now. I have not had to weed the bed in a month or more as there is not a ray of light that penetrates the foliage to reach the ground beneath.
