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.

Great Kale!

I really enjoyed this kale. It had really good germination, very easy to grow, the bugs stayed away from this type, and grew in between my other plants very well. It has full leaves and grows and grows. I will use this next year.

Beautiful Kale

I got almost 100% germination and the seedlings were strong and sturdy. The plants grew up into lovely, delicious kale. I'm excited to make kale chips with it. This is a great kale and I will grow it again.
