KALE – COLOUR MIX

Brassica oleracea

This colorful mix for the gourmet cook includes Blue Curled Nero di Toscana, Lacinato, Red Russian & Vates. Kale is extremely hardy, tolerant of both hot & cold weather. Grow it as a winter vegetable or as an ingredient in salad mixes. It is very nutritious; a source of folate, vitamin K, iron, iodine, calcium, and vitamin C. Sow the seeds in a seedbed. The timing is not vital because kale will germinate in temps as low as 5°C & as high as 35°C.  Sow the seeds about 1.5cm deep in rows 22cm apart, germination will take about 10 days. When the plants are about 22cm high & four leaves have developed (about 6 weeks after sowing) transplant them to their final positions. They should be planted slightly deeper than they grew in the seedbed.
