BARNAPOLI RAPE is a very vigorous brassica with lush tender leaves much like a very mild, non-bitter collard green reminiscent of broccoli leaves in shape and color. Loves the winter months in Florida and similar climates as do collards and other brassicas, and should be planted in spring in cold climate regions. My potted plants froze solid during the recent hard freeze and are thriving! Bred for dairy farmers, it has a very mild flavor so as to not taint the cow’s milk and thus is a good choice for people who do not like tough, strong flavored greens. Use the silvery blue-green leaves raw in salads or added to stir fry, omelets, casseroles and soups. Sow the seeds from October through February in Florida and similar climates as it is a cool season brassica vegetable only that resents heat. Normally sold only to farmers in 25 or 50 lb. bags. You will receive 1 teaspoon of the seeds, (approx. 600 seeds) for $3 plus a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope sent to me at : John Starnes 3212 West Paxton Avenue Tampa FL 33611.
