Purple Dinosaur Kale--

Beloved Lacinato flavor and texture in a new color.

From organic farmer Hank Keogh comes this tasty and colorful variation a favorite Italian Heirloom.  For spring and fall crops (best color in cold fall weather). Let it overwinter to produce a crops of colorful flower shoots, called Nappini, eaten before the flowers open.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea acephala


Start seeds in flats or pots early in Spring or in late Summer-mid-July onward for fall. Transplant seedlings 15" apart. If direct seeding, avoid soil crusting, which will make it hard for seedlings to emerge. Long-standing, so work in plenty of compost and lime if needed for long, steady growth. Winter survival will be improved by mulching and a fall dose of seaweed meal, ashes, or other potash source. Matures in 8-9 weeks. Overwintered shoots are sweet and choice.
