Does anyone know if calvo nero is available in stores in the bay area?

    Berkeley Bowl had cavolo nero aka lacinato, Tuscan, or dino kale last time I was there.

    I buy it at the Berkeley farmers' market.

      Just about all the farmer's markets have it right now... take your pick.

            Calvo nero, in Italian, means bald black guy. It's cavolo nero.
