Description

Vates Blue Curled Kale

Scotch type kale that is slow bolting with finely curled blue-green leaves. Low growing variety with short stems, 12-16" tall with 24" heads. Very hardy in heat and cold. Sow early spring or mid summer, long production times. 

History

Kale is believed to have originated during the Middle Ages from the wild B. oleracea, most likely in western parts of Europe. Kale was listed by Thomas Jefferson as grown at Monticello starting around 1777.

Uses

Kale is one of the traditional foundations in minestrone soup. Use in salads, stir-frys and even as kale chips. 

Growing Tip

Pick the outside leaves while they are tender, and the plant will continue to produce from the inside out. Kale is one of the standard fall and winter garden crops.
