Very hardy; will over winter with mulch in our area. Ornamental and delicious. The original seed came from a Kootenay farmer who had been growing it for 10+ years. Grown for 11 years.

Siberian Kale

Siberian Kale has light blue-green leaves with white stems and a ruffled shape. Its superior tenderness makes Siberian one of the best varieties for raw salad use and as a summer kale. Plants are extremely hardy and grow rapidly. Flavour is improved by light frost, but is exceptional anytime. This is the best kale to grow for use throughout the year. Grown and selected for 9 years.

Black Kale

Also known as Lacinato or "Dinosaur Kale" due to its bumpy leaf surface resembling dinosaur skin! This unique variety has the darkest blue-green colour of any kale. Originates in Tuscany where our original seed came from. Likes lots of water in the Summer heat. Grown for 9 years. We are continuing to select for longer leaves.

Kales planted in the front field

Kale is a production staple of the farm - we produce it from April to the end of November.

Growing Kale for seed takes dedication - as it is insect pollinated we have to separate varieties by time and distance. As its a biennial we have the choice of over wintering the plants or planting them early enough so that the spring chills break the biennial nature of the plants and induce flowering in the first year. Then planting them at one end of the farm or the other keeps them separated for safe insect pollination.
