Also known as Dinosaur Kale, a hardy, disease-resistant Heirloom popular in Italy. Excellent flavor that improves after a frost. Retains a dark green (nearly black) color when cooked. Adds a peppery taste to salads.
Planting Instructions: Sow seed direct into the garden after danger of frost has passed. For an earlier crop, start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost.
Suggestions: Make several pickings during season for abundant crop before hot weather. Sow again in midsummer for fall crop. A light fall frost makes the pleasant flavor of the leaves even better. Bake them for tasty chips.
