Siberian Dwarf Kale (50 days)
Frilly green leaves dance in the crisp early morning cold and thrive! Why? Because its roots were in Russia!
Plants grow 14" tall and are super hardy to the cold. Dwarf Siberian Kale is not only pleasing in appearance, but tasty as well.
Young leaves are great raw in salads, blanched for a meal, in stir fry or for use as a colorful garnish. A friend from Italy showed me how to saute it in olive oil/garlic and at the last minute splash it with a touch of balsamic vinegar. Wow, it was so good and made a real kale eater out of me.
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory.
I planted these in March, I started cutting and eating the biggest leaves now - end of May. I have been growing them in a big container, but outside. Very little care needed- mainly protection from the bunnies.
Came up well and is now looking quite healthy.
