The tender young leaves from these fast-growing plants can be eaten raw, or cooked for soup or stir fries.

Very cold hardy, harvest can continue right through snow.

Prefers full sun in spring and fall, but can benefit from light shade during hot weather.

Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. Prefers plentiful, consistent moisture. Can tolerate drought, but quality and flavor of leaves suffer.

Plant seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep, 1 inch apart in rows 18 to 30 inches apart. Thin to 12- to 18-inch spacings. Eat or transplant thinnings.

Similar to cabbage and other cole crops, you can also set out transplants in spring 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost.
Doesn't seem to be as troubled by pests as most other cole crops.

Packet: 50 seeds
