    July through to early October.

    Choose the best

    Look for crisp, unblemished leaves, with no holes. Avoid cores that are split or dry.

    Prepare it

    Remove old or damaged outer leaves, cut the leaves free of the core and slice out any tough central stalks. Rinse, then chop or slice.

    Store it

    It will keep in a cool, dark place or the vegetable drawer of the fridge for several days.

Cavolo nero recipes

Cavolo nero

An Italian cabbage with dark green leaves that have a good, strong flavour.


Cavolo nero can be used as a substitute in all recipes that require cabbage but it is particularly good in soups. The classic Tuscan soup, ribolitta, is traditionally left to sit for a day before serving to allow it to thicken and the flavours to develop. Cavolo nero is delicious simply fried in olive oil with garlic and chillies.
