Dazzling Blue Kale (Organic, 50-60 Days)

7 reviews

We just had to trial this new variety simply because of it name. As we watched it grow and mature into impressive, upright, lightly wrinkled, strap leaved lacinato type plants, we fell in love with it. The leaves really do have a blueish cast to them and pinkish- purple colored midribs branching out into the veins. Hearty, and like other kales, will sweeten after a frost.

PLANTING

Brassica oleracea

Germination: 3-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to the strongest seedling. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before last frost. Space 12-18" apart. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Starting in spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-18”. Sow closer to harvest baby greens. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Harvest Pick young leaves starting at 8-10". 

Tips: Plant into a fertile, well drained soil.  Leaves become very sweet after frost. Use thinning’s or sow a heavy seeded row every 10-14 days for baby greens.

Dazzling Blue Kale

The Dazzling Blue Kale seed arrived mid-winter (S.W. Maine) I planted some of it around June 1st. I also spilled a bunch of the tiny, tiny seed; every one, both the planted and the spilled, germinated!! The little plants are growing furiously and the clumped ones from the spillage survived transplanting 100%. Have yet to taste test, but that's a no-brainer; it'll prove delicious. Can barely wait for next catalog.

Lovely Blue Kale

Dazzling Blue Kale is very beautiful in the garden and would make an excellent addition to any flower garden because its tall blue leaves would be excellent as a backdrop. All the seeds I have ordered from Pinetree have been generous in number and very viable. Pinetree is an excellent company with which to do business.

Blue dazzling kale

Eh it didn’t do so well down here in warmer than Maine Tennessee. Compared to my other Kale varieties like Siberian, Red Russian and White Russian all were much more vigorous. I was kinda disappointed. Slow growth and buggy.

Dazzling Kale

Our spring has been cold & wet. Your kale still awaits the rototiller's patient ground fluffing.
