Was impressed by this cold hardy variety. Have overwintered twice in my northern Wyoming garden with no effort. This spring, after a long and harsh winter, there it was. It was very alive under a pile of snow.
I highly recommend this variety. While I started these indoors, I put them outside very early. They were snowed on once and frosted several times. Quite compact for my small size garden, they don't take up of space. I had 100% germination with this variety. This kale is thriving in my zone 6a garden. The taste is reminiscent of very mild broccoli and is far better than anything available in a grocery store!
