Looking for a source for Daubenton Kale

manchester-saraMarch 21, 2009


Does anyone know of a US source for Daubenton Kale (Brassica oleracea ramosa) or at least a source that will ship to the US? It is also known as Chou Daubenton and Chou d'Aubenton. my understanding is that it is available commercially in France but not anywhere in the US. It's a perennial kale and as my two "pet projects" in the garden are edible perennials and kales, I'm dying to get my hands on this! Any help is appreciated.

Hi Sara,

Did you ever find a US source for Daubenton Kale? So far I have only found it on a French site as well. If I do ever find it, I'll let you know.

After much (MUCH!) searching, I've found a listing for this in the PDF catalog (the 2010/2011 edition, at least) of the Agroforestry Research Trust in the UK: http://www.agroforestry.co.uk and http://www.agroforestry.co.uk/Catalogue201011.pdf for the PDF catalog directly. I don't know if they will ship to the US or Canada -- it looks doubtful from the catalog, but hope springs perennial :).

Sorry to say, I just got word back from the Agroforestry folks and they don't ship outside of Europe.

Hey Manchester Sara; B&T Seeds sells this variety. The Organic Gardening Catalogue does too.(UK) also Bountiful Gardens sells it but they have it listed as "Pentland Brig Kale. There are also several seed trading sites that have this variety as well.
