An attractive, dark green leafed kale. It is an excellent winter/ early spring crop for the vegetable kitchen garden when fresh produce is scarce. 

Pick the leaves when young and tender to put into a mixed leaf salad to add a peppery taste. Otherwise, begin to harvest after the first frosts for improved flavour.   Kale is a versatile vegetable that can be steamed, boiled and made into soups and stews. 

Sow Mar-April undercover in individual modules to plant out in May or sow direct in May-June.  Net to protect from butterflies and keep in full sun or semi-shade.
