Description

Kale - Lacinato - Brassica oleracea (Acephala group)

Biennial Heirloom. This kale is heavily savoyed (bumpy) with dark green, almost black, leaves. The strap-shaped leaves are not curly like regular kale, and add an interesting texture and color to salads. If using in soup, add kale at the end to avoid overcooking. This variety is a primitive, open kale traced to Tuscan origins.

Did You Know? Kale is a great source of vitamins A, C, and K, and minerals, containing twice the amount of vitamin C as an equivalent portion of orange juice and more calcium than milk!

Soil & Water: Kale will thrive in any moderately fertile soil with good drainage, organic matter, and a pH range of 5.5-6.5. It needs regular, even watering to avoid bitterness.

Planting & Growing: This variety grows well in both heat and cold and may survive winter. Start indoors 6 weeks before the last frost or seed directly as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant in mid-July for fall harvests.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest young leaves for salads. Older leaves are best steamed or cooked. Flavor improves after light frost exposure.
