Item #: 631140
Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
An 18th-century Italian heirloom, Lacinato Kale remains popular today due to the superior flavor of its sturdy, savoyed, dark blue-green leaves and high nutritional content. Jefferson recorded the planting of “Cavolo nero (Coleworts)” in his vegetable garden at Monticello on March 12, 1777. Cavolo Nero, or Lacinato Kale, is also known as Tuscan Kale, Dinosaur Kale, and Black Kale.

Kale is best grown as a spring, fall, or winter crop, as cool temperatures and light frosts enhance the flavor. Sow ¼” deep in rich garden loam in early spring or late summer. Alternatively, start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost and plant out 24” apart. Full sun. Approximately 100 seeds per packet.
