Spotted some the other day in Makro, Chiang Mai

maybe your local Makro has it too, it was imported

so will not be cheap.

It probably isnt allowed for me to bring it into the country in my luggage, is it?

With an amount for personal use you won't have problems even for the very unlikely case of being checked.

Vegetables is not what they might confiscate.

Absolutely no pork products currently! (swine fever scare).

 

Have never noticed it in Thailand and not being an admirer.

Villa market has imported vegetables for nidicolous prices...

EDIT: NCC was a second faster.

Lazada selling Kale seeds 20 baht baht per pack, don't see why it would be expensive in the open markets.  Go to the open markets and ask the veggie vendors for "Khana Bi"  or ask "Mi khana bi mai?"

This could mean that I have the wrong idea what "kale" is (English not my first language).

This is what I was thinking about:

I've found it at Friendship Supermarket and Tops in the basement of TukCom. Not always available, but most of the time it is.

 

I think I've seen it at Big C Extra, but not sure about that.

 

Had some two days ago at MK restaurant at Big C South and many times at MK at Big C North.

If you ask in a market for Kale ( ผักคะน้า ) they will sell you this

And that is exactly what I NOT understood as kale.

In Germany the stuff that I depicted in post #7 goes under the name of "Gruenkohl".

It is not everyone's favorite and is most popular in the north.

It's cooked/fried and eaten with some fatty sausage.

Its harvested in late autumn and connoisseurs swear that it is best after it got the first frost!

That's why I was surprised that this should be "easily available" in Thailand.

In addition I read that this "Gruenkohl" is a new trend among some people in the US?

Only the thread starter @soistalker could shed light on this!

So that's where I remember it from , in Norway we call it "Grønnkål", almost same pronunciation.  It grows everywhere in a cold climate.

It's all green, so good for you. 😊

Sure thing.

I like Thai Kale.

But it really had nothing to do with western Kale.

Kiss sell a beef and kale dish, in oyster sauce.

That is also known as gai lan... Chinese broccoli... Thai kale...

Real Western kale is what I saw at Central market btw...

Nutritionally, Western kale is far superior.. Google it to compare...

I have never seen the "curly kale", prevalent in UK supermarkets, sold here. Thai kale, phak khanaa, is ubiquitous. It is the same plant, just a different cultivar.
