I have seen lots or recipes that call for kale but the pictures I see on the Internet look different from the kale I have seen at the store. The pictures it looks more like a flat leaf like spinach. The stuff at the store that I bought is more of a ruffled leaf and says kale greens. Are there different kinds of kale? I'm trying eat more of a different variety of veggies and some of these are still pretty new to me.

There are several different varieties of kale, and they can be distinguished by their leaf type.  Here is info about the different types, with pictures.


Scots/Curly Kale

Plain-leaved

Rape Kale  (You'd think someone would have changed the name of this one.  SMH)

Leaf and Spear  (Can't find much info on this one, but it basically looks like a cross between curly and plain)

Cavolo Nero  (AKA Lacinato Kale or Black Leaf Kale)


I hope this helps!
