Lacinato Kale Seeds

Lacinato kale is also known as dinosaur kale or black kale. The leaves are sweeter and delicate than most curly leafed varieties. Lacinato kale is very winter hardy and can grow well into November; freezing temperatures will actually tenderize the leaves, making them sweeter and enriching the flavour.

The leaves will reach up to approximately 60 cm (2′) in height. It can be harvested at its various stages of growth without destroying the plant. It’s safe to harvest a leaf or two from each plant periodically. If you are harvesting leaves all year, the actual yield of the plant is quite large.

How to Grow Kale

Lacinato kale is very easy to grow from seed. Choose a location with full sun. It prefers rich, moist, and well-drained soil. When sowing the seeds space them 4 inches apart and in rows 12 inches apart. Press the seeds into the soil and lightly cover them with compost. Plant 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost. Water the plants well each week. Lacinato kale will mature in 100 days.

    We really love our Kale. It grows well in our garden and it is so easy to cut off a few leaves for our curries, stir fries, and smoothies. We have even added it to mashed potatoes, omelettes, spaghetti sauce, and lasagne.
