Chinese kale is also known as kailaan or Chinese broccoli. A popular, vigorous hybrid, Green Lance has white flowers, green leaves and stalks. These are all delicious.

Matures about 10 days earlier than open pollinated varieties and is heat and cold tolerant.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost or late summer/early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest main stalk when it reaches 8" tall and 2-3 flowers are open. After this is cut, the plant branches freely for an extended harvest but stems and leaves will be smaller. Mature plants can tolerate light frost.
