An excellent variety for home gardeners due to its compact growth habit, lovely blue green color, good flavor, and frost tolerance. This one stands out as the choice for the discriminating grower to whom plant size is not the primary consideration. 30 seeds.
Indoors- 4-6 weeks before last frost, 1/2” deep. Keep well watered and fertilized. Transplant out just before last frost. Start at same time as Broccoli, Cabbage, and Cauliflower.
Outdoors- 1/2” deep, 2-4” apart in early spring with soil temperature 55 degrees. Thin seedling to 12-24” apart. Sow another planting in mid/late summer for fall crops.
Harvest- Pick young leaves starting at 8-10” from the middle upward.
Tips- Leaves become very sweet after frost. Use thinning’s or sow a heavy seeded row every 10-14 days for baby greens.
