Starbor Kale (F1 Hybrid 45 Days)

Excellent variety for home gardeners due to its compact growth habit, lovely blue green color, good flavor, and frost tolerance. Stands out as the choice for the discriminating grower to whom plant size is not the primary consideration.

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.

    Excellent choice for Midwest

    Good taste throughout growing season in Iowa, insect free, last harvest on December 13--a record. Lasts well in the refrigerator after harvest. Tastes good raw, cooked, and especially in smoothies.
