Also known as dinosaur kale due to its crinkled, reptilian leaves, and Tuscan kale, being an heirloom from the region. Sow Any time in spring. Plant Seeds 1 cm (3/8 in) deep and temp soil. Thin to an eventual spacing of 30 - 40 cm (12 - 16 in) apart. Prefers direct sun, but can also be grown in part shade. Kale is frost tolerant - and sweeter after one - but will not overwinter in Alberta. 'Cut and come again', meaning you can harvest a few leaves at a time, saving the rest of the plant for later. Freeze or dehydrate for storage - we enjoy dried kale in soups.
