  • You can plant kale at any time, from early spring to early summer.
  • If you plant kale late in the summer, you can harvest it from fall until the ground freezes in winter.
  • Plant the seeds half inch deep into well-drained, light soil.
  • After about 2 weeks, thin the seedlings so that they are spaced 8 to 12 inches apart.

 

Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade.
Soil: Well-drained sandy soil.
Water: Moderately.

Caring for Cavolo Nero Kale

  • Apart from keeping the soil well hoed and weeded you should remove any discolored lower leaves from the plant to improve the air-flow through the crop and thus minimize pests (aphids) and diseases (molds).
  • Kale will thrive in any moderately fertile soil with good drainage, organic matter, and a pH range of 5.5-6.5. It needs regular, even watering to avoid bitterness.
  • Kale grows best in cool climates and may survive winter. Start seeds indoors 6 weeks before the last frost or seed directly as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant mid-July for fall harvests.

Harvesting

Throughout the winter.
