Kale Seeds

Botanical name: Brassica oleracea Acephala Group

Kale is mainly an annual cool season crop; it is frost hardy. In temperate areas sow early spring and early autumn; in subtropical areas sow March – July; in tropical areas sow late March – July, during the dry season. Seed germinate best between 8 – 30°C soil temperature.
Sow 10 mm deep in trays or seedbed. Space plants 30 – 45 cm apart. Plant in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Keep soil moist and add organic fertiliser monthly. Harvest the young, tender, centre leaves. Kale is a ‘cut and come again’ vegetable and easy to grow. Use as steamed green or as an exciting ingredient in salad mixes.
