Dino/Tuscan, Classic Kale Flavor

Brassica oleracea

Italian heirloom. An upright clump of heavily textured, blue-green leaves has a sweet, mild flavor. Flavor intensifies after first frost. Blooms late fall to winter. Grows 24-36” tall and wide. Harvest at 30-60 days. Use fresh, steamed or braised.

Placement: Plant in borders, containers and kitchen gardens. Do not plant where any of the cabbage family grew last year.

Care: Full sun. Plant in well-drained soil. Regular water use. Add slow-release fertilizer when planting. Space 36” apart.
