Dazzling Blue Lacinato Kale

60 days. As gorgeous as Tuscan Lacinato Kale is, tasty and tender Dazzling Blue kicks it up yet another notch with striking powder-blue-green leaves with lavender-pink midribs. It’s even more vigorous and cold-hardy, too, lasting through the winter in milder climates. As temperatures drop, the colors intensify, and the leaves may turn a smoky purple. Dazzling, indeed! (OP.)

One packet of about 220 seeds

  • Information
  • Ancient Egyptians believed that Kale had magical properties, not the least of which was a cure for hangovers. We cannot guarantee this remedy, but we do know that Kale is easily grown by even the most black-thumbed gardener. Direct-sow or raise transplants in late summer for fall and winter harvest since Kale becomes sweet and tender after being hit by a couple of frosts. This nutrient-packed vegetable grows quickly and is ideal for baby greens, trimmed when young to toss into salads. Or harvest larger leaves a few at a time; the plant will keep producing, over-wintering reliably in many regions. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
