Lacinato Kale is a delicious, hardy variety that is used by home cooks and professional chefs all round the world. Along with being very easy to grow, these can do well even in hotter environments. Strutting dark green, bluish leaves that are long and narrow, these can begin to be harvested for salads etc, as early as one month after transplant. For bigger harvest over a longer period, grow them out to maturity. Taste is semi sweet and even sweeter after a light freeze. Cold tolerant and can survive winter weather, even here in Indiana.
