Product Description

Qualities:

This attractive vegetable offers a very robust cabbage flavor more intense than that of green or black kale.

 

Purple kale is often kept as an ornamental plant and used in salads to add a bright punch of color. Purple kale also has a more robust, cabbage-like flavor than other varieties, making it a good option for hearty soups and stews.

Care and Harvesting Tips:

Cut and come again! Kale can be regrown multiple times, as long as you leave some leaves on the plant.

 

To harvest, snip the leaves closest to the base of the plant as they will be the first to mature.  Avoid picking the terminal bud (located at the top centre of the plant), they help to maintain the plant’s productivity.

 

Kale may develop long roots, lift the net pods up to check the roots every 3 weeks and trim extending roots, leaving just one pinky finger long of roots extended from the base of the net pod.
