Description

Grow it for its ornamental beauty alone. Compact 1’ plants yield tender, blue-green, finely crinkled leaves that are quite delicious and rich in vitamin A. Extra cold-hardy and aphid-resistant. Great fresh or cooked, either before or after a frost, when leaves become very sweet. Harvest baby leaves for salad, then continue to pick the larger leaves from the middle outward to braise or sauté. Use thinnings or sow a heavily-seeded row every 10-14 days for baby greens.
