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.

Culinary tips: This leaf green is traditionally used in Portuguese sopas or sopash which is a stew with meat, vegetables, and spices. Use leaves as you would collards and mustards. Excellent juiced.
