Kale 'Dwarf Blue Curled' 300-400 Seeds (Brassica oleracea L.) Vegetable Heirloom

Compact heirloom variety with curly, blueish-green leaves. Outstands for its sweet, beautiful flavour and nicely tender texture. Grows as compact, very hardy bush and produce an abundance of longish, delicate, densely curled leaves that can be harvested directly from the garden through the cold winter months. The colder it is, the sweeter the kale tastes. Grows to 30-45cm (12-18in) tall. Deservedly called a super food, it's packed with body alkalising nutrients, which naturally keeps the body healthy and strong. Re-grows after cutting. Perfect for juicing (does not give the bitterness, as some other kale varieties), a must in salads, great for stir fry, steaming, cooking. Perfect for microgreens (10-15 days), baby leaf (25-35 days) and full maturity (65-70) days.

Growing: Year round in tropical climates; in temperate climates - seeds can be sown directly once the soil can be worked or start inside 4-6 weeks prior the planting date.

Soil: Fertile, well-draining, rich in organic matter.

Sowing depth: Sow the seeds 1/4in (0.6cm) deep inside fertile, well drained soil preferably rich in organic matter. For baby leaves sow apprx 60 seeds/ft in 2-4in (5-10cm) bands in 3/4in (2cm) between the bands. For full size sow approximately 3 seeds every 8-10in (20-25cm), thinning to 8-10in (20-25cm).

Row spacing: 18-30in (46-76cm).

Moisture: Water regularly to keep the soil moist (not soggy!).

Light: Warm, bright location with plenty of sunlight.
