Non-GMO Blue Vates Kale seeds can be grown in all grow zones, with full or partial sun. Directly sow the seeds one fourth of an inch deep in moist, rich soil, with a pH level between 6.5 and 6.8. Space the seeds eighteen to twenty four inches apart, with two feet between rows. While growing, the soil must be kept moist, but care must be taken to not over water the plants. The outer leaves can be harvested sixty days after sowing. Continuous harvesting is possible if the bud is kept intact.
Milder broccoli flavor than other varieties, however the leaves tend to be a bit tougher. Very cold tolerant. Use as durable garnish, as a cooked side dish, sliced thin for salads, or in soups and stews.
