Details

THE STORY: AKA Tuscan, Lacinato and Dinosaur Kale, has a deep green hue and crinkly-yet-palatable leaf that makes it popular pick among chefs, home gardeners, and vegetable lovers. As member of the Brassica oleracea species, Dino kale is kin to broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, and has a milder flavor than some of the Russian kale varieties. While it isn't quite as cold hardy as its kale cousins, it usually survives most of the winter under a blanket of row cover and snow. The seed we sourced for this particular kale variety was selected after trialling several other sources, and we chose it for it hardiness, vigor, and broad leaves.

USE: Use mature leaves in salads if marinated in an acidic dressing. The flavor is great in pasta dishes, or alone with garlic and olive oil.

How to Grow

Direct sow Dino Kale about a month before last frost. Or, sow under protection 8 weeks earlier, then transplant about a month before last frost. For a young, tender fall crop, sow 3-4 months before first fall frost. Avoid planting at edge of garden, as slugs love kale and will creep in for nightly dining. Harvest a handful of individual outer leaves from each plant; mature plants will be ready for another harvest in a few days.
