Cultivation: Prefers full sun in spring and fall, but can benefit from light shade during hot weather. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. For spring crops, start plants indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, and transplant after danger of all frost. For fall crops, direct sow 2-3 months before first frost. Keep soil moist. When plants reach 12" tall, start harvesting the outer leaves, leaving 3 inner layers to support further growth or harvest entire mature plant. For baby leaf production, direct sow 1/4-1/2" deep in a 2-4" ban.

Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: The tender young leaves can be eaten raw in salads, prepared in soup, added with pasta, boiled, sautéed, or baked as kale chips. The broad mature leaves are de ribbed and usually blanched first, and then sautéed with other, flavorful ingredients such as anchovies. Kale has become a popular vegetable due to its nutritional value and health benefits.
