Growing Calendar for Kale Seeds - Cavolo Nero
Delivery: 5-7 working days
The narrow leaves of this Kale have a heavily savoyed, 'bubbly' look. It cooks quickly, keeping a rich dark green colour to the leaves, a wonderful flavour and a delicate texture.
Cavolo Nero is impressively cold-hardy and stands up to weather that other cabbage relatives just can't abide. Like parsnips the flavour is intensified after an evening's frost.
Good news to the home-grower it is resistant to many crop diseases including pesky woodpigeons that can strip leaves off your prize crops in an instant.
Wonderful flavour, narrow dark green leaves that cook quickly.
Sow Indoors: April-May sow in a pre watered seed tray.
Sow Outdoors: June-July Transplant when 5in (12cm) high into pre watered soil and firm in. Keep soil moist at all times.
Plant Out: June-July in rows 18in (45cm) apart and 18in (45cm) between plants in required harvest postion.
Harvest: November-April Start picking young leaves from the centre of the plant to encourage side shoots.
Keep feeding plants to prolong shooting.
Healthy plants all ready for putting out very soon.
