Kale, Cavolo Nero, Nero de Toscana (1500) (5g) Vegetable Seeds Description

Kale, Cavolo Nero, Nero de Toscana Vegetable Seeds Also know as Kale, syn. 'Cavolo Nero', Tuscan Kale, Black Cabbage.

 

'Cavolo Nero' or 'Nero Di Toscana' is the only kale grown in Italy, simply because it is by far the best tasting kale. Its large strap like leaves are fantastic in a stir fry with excellent taste and strong dark green colour. Kale is a nutritional powerhouse with powerful antioxidant properties and is also anti-inflammatory.

Ideal for successive cutting it keeps on producing tender leaves for months on end.

Not only is Kale a tasty vegetable with a long cropping season but it is a very attractive vegetable as well.

Many gardeners grow them in their borders purely for their ornamental value, especially over winter. Kale is resistant to most pests and diseases and grows in almost any site and position.

Long heavily blistered leaves of dark green, Very dwarf growing produces an abundance of curly leaves from the centre of each plant

This eye-catching kale is also known as Black Palm, as it does resemble a palm tree. The dark green leaves are 2-3 inches wide and 10 inches long, and have a blistered/crumply appearance. Growing upright and open, this kale is dual purpose.

Its young leaves are wonderful used as fresh salad greens also popular in Tuscany and central Italy where it is used in soups and stews. It's great to eat and it is a striking ornamental. A cross between cabbage and kale, it is extremely winter hardy, becoming very sweet and full of flavour after a freeze.

50 days. From sow to crop

Direct sow May to August
Sow seeds 1/4 inches deep, about 4-6 inches inch apart, in rows 18-36 inches apart. Cover the seed with fine vermiculite or sifted compost for best germination. Keep moist to prevent soil crusting. Optimum soil temperature range for germination: 10 and 25°C. Days to germination: 5-17.

After plants produce their third true leaf, thin to about 12-24 inches apart, maintaining the strongest plants. These early thinning are wonderful for fresh salad greens. Now apply 1/4 to 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer, or equivalent, into the soil around each young plant to provide the nutrition necessary for optimum production.

Harvesting:
They provide a crop between late September to early May. Harvest the young leaves only which will be at the top of the plant. This will stimulate the plant to produce more young tender leaves.
