Dwarf Blue Curled Kale Seeds

Organic, Heirloom

'Dwarf Blue Curled', from the 1800s, is extremely hardy and will overwinter in all but the coldest climates. Like most greens, it grows best in cool weather but will also withstand some heat. Leaves are rich in vitamins and minerals and low in calories. The flavor of the leaves is sweetened after a light frost; delicious in winter soups!

This kale has a nice texture and produced plenty for the two of us and more in spite of Cabbage White destruction. It wilts in the coldest weather, but should be good until late spring.

The Dwarf Blue Curled Kale was something else - NOT curly kale!

Mislabeled Seeds? Not Dwarf Blue Curled Kale

After starting this from seed and planting in my garden this spring, the plant is definitely not Dwarf Blue Curled Kale. It looks like some kind of kale, possibly Premier. Disappointed that the packet was mislabeled.
