There’s a new vegetable coming to a grocery store near you, and The Daily Meal can report that it’ll be called “kalettes,” a hybrid between kale and Brussels sprouts.
The new food product is “a fresh fusion of sweet and nutty, blooming with the best flavors of kale and Brussels sprouts,” according to the vegetable’s Facebook page. It’s been on the market since 2010 in the U.K. under the name FlowerSprouts and has popped up in California under the name lollipop kale, but this fall it will make a national rollout with a brand new name, according to a representative from Tozer Seeds, the company that invented it.
The new vegetable has a core similar to Brussels sprouts but kale-like leaves, and one can fit in the palm of your hand. They’re quite versatile, and can be steamed, roasted, or eaten raw in salads. They cook up faster than Brussels sprouts because they’re not so dense, and can be used the same way you would either kale or Brussels sprouts.
