Kale is called “kadeřávek zelený” in Czech. You can buy it at farmers markets in season or you can order it at the following link from ‘FreshBedýnky’ (even out of season, as it comes from Spain) – http://bit.ly/1GSA1A8

Seeds are possible to buy in garden and DIY stores or in supermarkets in the spring. Or on the internet: http://bit.ly/1EguumK

Beware – kale is not “kapusta” – it comes from the same “family”, but kapusta, known in the CR, is savoy cabbage.
