Heirloom Kale Seeds

Kale is a superfood with high nutrient content. When homegrown, it has superior flavor and tenderness. It's also a beautiful ornamental in the garden.

Sowing Kale Seeds

Sow kale seeds outdoors in late spring to summer, 1/4" deep. Thin to 12" apart. Full sun to part shade.


Kale 'Lacinato'
(60 days)

500 seeds   $2.50                     
Lacinato kale is shockingly expensive at our local grocery store. Yet it's so easy to grow in the garden. The long, narrow leaves are heavily textured. The color is a gorgeous, deep blue-green. It has a distinctive, yet mild flavor that we enjoy.

Italian heirloom. Also known as Dinosaur Kale.
Kale 'Russian Red'
(50 days)

500 seeds   $2.50  
Russian Red kale has beautiful, gray-green leaves with purple veins and deeply cut edges. We like to add the tender leaves to bean soups and stews during the last 10 minutes of cooking for extra nutrition. It's also a good baby green.

Russian heirloom, pre-1885. Also known as Ragged Jack.
