Siberian kale is all-around amazing. It's easy to grow, beautiful in the garden, easy to cook with, and super healthy to eat. And its mild sweet flavor is enhanced by cold weather so plant it in the spring and fall. Vigorous plants tolerate warmer temps too. 45-65 days.
Plant Information
Shorter in height than other varieties but very impressive in width, Siberian kale can have a plant spread of almost 3 feet! Its coarse, blue-green leaves are large and very tender with a mild, sweet flavor that is actually enhanced when the plants endure a light frost. A native of Russia, Siberian kale thrives in cold weather but is also tolerant of warmer temps so it's ideal for early spring and fall plantings and will grow well over the summer. It's fantastic in salads, steamed like spinach, and added to soups and stir-frys, and it comes with countless health benefits so yes, eat more kale! Kale is becoming increasingly popular because it's been found to be one of the healthiest vegetables you can grow. It's literally packed with all the most powerful antioxidants, particularly the carontenoids and flavonoids that have been found to help prevent and fight cancer. It's also loaded with vitamins and minerals, very low in calories, and contains no fat. No wonder it's so often referred to as "the queen of greens."
