Thousand Headed Kale VKA-3928



An ancient heirloom kale

meant to fill the "hungry gap" in spring before the first newly-planted spring crops.

This kale has many growing points instead of just one, so it puts out a lot more foliage and tender shoots in spring.

Huge plants make lots of food. A must for self-sufficiency.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea acephala


Start seeds in flats/pots very early in Spring or in late summer-mid-July onward for fall. Transplant seedlings 15" apart. If direct seeding, avoid soil crusting, which makes it hard for seedlings to emerge. Long-standing; 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. Produces a large yield.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION :Easy to grow, tolerates winter cold

Best winter kale
on 03/01/16 by DP in West Cascades

This kale survived our winter (with no protection) best of several varieties, and even grew in the short winter days. This season I'll plant a lot more of it.
