Heirloom Italian Kale – Tuscan Baby Leaf

$3.55 + GST

Imported from Italy, our Tuscan kale strain is the fastest growing and best tasting for baby leaf salads. Easily grown by the “cut and come again” method, seeds are sown thickly, then cut as needed when just 4 to 5 inches tall, leaving the crowns to regrow for multiple additional harvests. Baby leaf kale has a much more tender texture and milder sweet flavor than mature kale and makes a wonderful fresh salad.

GROWING NOTES

For best flavor, kale needs consistent moisture and mild weather conditions. Birds love tender young kale seedlings, so protect them as necessary with netting or floating row covers. This attractive edible will also grow well in pots at least 18 to 20 inches across to snip as needed for salads or stir-fry.

HARVEST AND USE

To harvest by the “cut and come again” method: when plants are 4 to 5 inches tall, cut as much as you need, by using scissors to shear off leaves 1 to 2 inches above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly and plants will regrow for several more cuttings. These tasty and highly nutritious leaves are delicious used as fresh salads, especially with a handful of chopped nuts and fruit like apples or pears. Or stir-fry very quickly for healthy quick greens.
