- CommentsTronchuda, also know as Sea Kale, is a delicious heirloom that has been a favorite in Portugal for hundreds of years due to its flavor and ease of culture. Beira Tronchuda is an improvement on traditional Portuguese heirlooms and is milder, sweeter and more heat tolerant than other crops. Tall heads of paddle-shaped blue-green leaves with white mid-ribs have a delicious tender-sweet taste. A wonderful addition to soups and stews, excellent sauteed or braised.
