organic kale seedOrganic Blue Curled Scotch Dwarf (56 days)

First mentioned in garden text around 1863.

Dwarf Blue Curled Scotch is an early kale that produces tasty greens when used in salads or steamed. 

The blue-green leaves are finely curled and very attractive, reaching 12-15" in height, and spreading to 20-35" in width. 

Extremely hardy and productive.  Will over winter with little protection.  This is one of the best frost resistant kales. 

A perfect source of nutritional greens during the cool season. 

Great market garden kale for its flavor and color.  Easy to sell.

TIP:  Saute with olive oil and minced garlic.  Just when they become wilty add a touch of balsamic vinegar.  Stir, remove from heat and serve.  SO GOOD!
