Bayou Kale is a mid-maturing forage brassica with good winter hardiness, a smooth leaf, and a nutty flavor that is sweet to human taste. This kale variety has a smaller stem but grows to 8 feet when taken for seed production.

Bayou has excellent regrowth when rotationally grazed, and the stems are more palatable than forage rapes for cattle and sheep. Used in food plots for deer and upland game birds, animals will eat the Bayou first when planted beside Dwarf Essex rapeseed. When grown in late summer or early fall, it is considerably more winter-hardy than radishes and helps control erosion.
