The first year we grew this kale I was amazed! It grew thigh high and all the leaves remained tender. When we were done harvesting in the fall the chickens enjoyed the rest until the hardest of frosts.
I tried this kale a few summers ago and it was wonderful. One of the plants actually over-wintered this year in our freezing Ohio weather!! I couldn't believe it, but it did and I had some seeds left from last year that grew right up this summer. Wonderful plants!!
This Kale was prolific! It grew from early spring into late fall and never had a problem with the heat.
This kale is tender and tasty, especially after the first frost. I'm not particularly fond of most kales, but this one is actually sweet when picked in late fall. I even grow it in my cold frame well into December in Colorado. Easy to grow and reliable germination.
