Siberian Dwarf Kale is an extremely vigorous and a cold hardy plant that can withstand light frost. It is an early variety of Kale that produces high yields of lightly crumpled deep green foliage. Leaves are crunchy and flavourful. Used fresh in salads and on sandwiches or cooked. Dwarf Siberian grows from a crown, like parsley or spinach does. The plant is upright and compact growing upward between 36-40cm (14-16”) tall. A solid pick for planting either in your garden or container planting.
Open pollinated-untreated seeds. For baby Kale leaves sow seeds 5-10cm 2-4" wide along a short row. Sow at approximately 60 seeds/ 30 cm (12”). Clip leaves at 4- 5 weeks old for baby kale. Kale requires good cultivation; mulch or hoe frequently to keep soil loose and weed-free. For earlier harvest, sow seeds indoors in a sunny spot or under plant lights 6 to 8 weeks before outdoor planting date- this works for both the spring and fall. Avoid planting in garden area where cabbage family was grown the year before. Withstands light frost.
