Description for Tuscan Kale
Tuscan Kale is a leafy type of cabbage that doesn't form round, compact heads, but rather resembles palm fronds, with very dark green, almost black, leaves that can be up to a yard (a meter) long, have pronounced ribs, and whose surfaces have a distinctive ruffled appearance. It grows best in the spring and fall and can tolerate fall frosts.
Planting and care
Caring for Tuscan 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.
Throughout the winter.
