Product Description

50 days. Most kale gets sweeter as the first frost hits. Red Winter is sweet all the time making it excellent for mesclun mixes, garnishes and sautéeing. The red veins, wavy margins, and foliage that resembles oak leaves make Red Winter as attractive as it is delicious. Harvest baby greens in just 25 days.

This packet plants five 10 foot rows.

When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost. For continual baby greens, sow successively every 3 weeks. Sowing 8 to 10 weeks before first fall frost is recommended as kale tastes best when exposed to cold temperatures. In mild winter climates, sow in fall for late winter harvest.

When to start inside: 8 to 10 weeks before average last frost for transplanting outside 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest young leaves at 2" - 4" for baby greens. Larger, outer leaves can be periodically harvested, or the whole plant can be cut off at ground level. Plants can also be left to overwinter; mulch thickly when ground freezes for harvest the following spring.

  • Days to Emerge: 10-14 days

  • Seed Spacing: A group of 4 seeds every 10"
