Jefferson's Kitchen Garden commonly included various Kales such as German, Russian, Delaware, Malta, and Scotch types. This tender green, also known as Borecole and Headless Cabbage, is a superior source of vitamins and iron, surpassing even spinach. It is best grown as a spring, fall, or winter crop, as cool temperatures enhance the flavor. Sow one-quarter inch deep in rich garden loam. Full sun.
Approximately 85-90 seeds per pack.
