Description

Kale - Ripbor - Brassica oleracea (Acephala Group)

Hardy Biennial F1 Hybrid. Ripbor kale has a rich sweet flavor and is packed with protein, and Vitamins A and C. Ripbor has a compact habit with shorter distances between leaves than its relative Winterbor and is noted for the rapid re-growth of leaves. The curliness of the leaves gives texture for stews, steaming, or baking into kale chips. A reliable performer in the winter vegetable garden. The uniform leaves resist yellowing and leaf drop.

Did You Know? In Scotland kale was such a vital crop that the word "kail" was synonymous with "food".

Soil and 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 and Growing: Kale 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 and Storage: Harvest young leaves for salads. Older leaves are best steamed or cooked. Flavor improves after light frost exposure.
