Baby Chidori kale grows in tightly compacted heads that are filled with frilly striated leaves. Leaves at the center of the head are rich shades of solid fuchsia and magenta, while those around the outer edges are bicolored, tipped in dusty blue-green. Chidori has a chewy texture and a very robust cabbage flavor, especially when eaten raw. When blanched in water the flavor slightly mellows, but the fibrous stems remain tough and should be removed.
Chidori kale is a vibrantly colored ornamental variety that is scientifically known as Brassica oleracea. In the horticultural trade, it is traditionally grown as a decorative garden plant, but it is also entirely edible though somewhat more bitter. Most ornamental kales are a descendant of Scotch kale, Chidori being one of the most ornately ruffled and richly colored. The amazing display of color comes from anthocyanin pigments which are turned on as temperatures drop.
