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.

Slow to start, but then...
I'll start by saying I don't know a lot about harvest timing on kale, this was my first time growing any. I decided to plant in late March when the frosts just wouldn't stop coming. Germination was highly successful, I estimate 60-80% of seeds planted. Once thinned, the plants grew slowly until later in summer (~July). Since then, and still now into October, growth continues and my wife and I have been using it frequently in mixed salads. We have enough to share with 1-2 friends for similar use and I planted just one 3' row, this was thinned to 4 plants.
