Winterbor Kale

55-65 days. An outstanding Dutch hybrid, Winterbor's finely-curled, blue-green leaves grow lushly on plants growing to 2' tall. It is suitable for sowing in early spring or late summer for winter harvest. Tolerant of frost and snow, Winterbor lends itself to successive cuttings. Dutch folks take this vegetable seriously since Kale is served in many a hearty winter meal. Often it will be boiled, chopped finely and spooned onto a bed of mashed Potatoes. The traditional accompaniment is rookwurst, a savory smoked sausage and gravy. (F1.)

One packet of about 75 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.
