Bear Necessities Kale

New! 25-50 days. This is the fanciest, frilliest, most finely cut Kale you’ll ever grow! With a mild, sweet flavor and a tender texture, it’s perfect for fresh Kale salads, and it adds wonderful loft to green salads. Its structure is less attractive to munching insects, and it’s quite productive and cold-tolerant. The leaves vary from medium green to lilac-purple. Gorgeous in every way! (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.
