Kale (Brassica spp.) is a hardy, cool-season biennial that we at AGT are particularly fond of. It is easy to grow and quite tolerant of adverse conditions, though it prefers cold temps to extreme heat. Kale plants, well-tended, will produce an abundance of leafy greens that get sweeter with cold weather. Kale is a nutritional powerhouse containing anti-cancer compounds, and is high in vitamins A, C & K, as well as calcium. Start seeds indoors in winter, or direct sow in spring or autumn. Plants prefer moist, fertile soil and full sun.
