Kale can be prepared just like spinach and steamed, blanched, or braised. It is exceptionally good with garlic and can be added to thick and creamy potato, bean, or sausage soups.
Try adding cooked kale to roasted sweet potato dishes or tossing with pomegranate seeds, pine nuts, and pancetta in a citrus-vinegar dressing.
When adding raw kale to a salad, wash and gently massage the leaves to break down the texture before tossing.

- Start Indoors: 6-8 weeks before last frost

Ratings & Reviews
My favorite type of kale to grow, currently have some growing under lights here in zone 5/6 since January that we have been harvesting. Just planted a second set of seeds to plant out under my row covers for continued harvests. Great taste, prolific, and holds up to summer conditions here as well (provided it is not in full sun).
Excellent taste, tender, hardy. Grew very well in heavy clay. Still doing well as November turns and flurries start. Leaves will yellow and drop if you don't harvest them in good time.
