Lacinato Kale Start
This kale has a dark green color (it is sometimes called Nero de Toscana because the green can look almost black). The leaves are long, flat, and oval shaped with a bumpy appearance. We actually call this “Dino Kale” at our house because the bumps on the leaves remind us of how we imagine dinosaur skin to look. We especially like this kale raw, cut en chiffonade in salads because the unruffled leaves are a little softer and more tender than the leaves of the other two cultivars.
50 days. Cold hardy. Plant mid April when ground is workable. Protect seedlings from frost until established.
