65-80 days. Black Tuscan Kale is a popular variety for making soups and kale chips. This crop is sometimes called Dinosaur Kale due to its dark green coloring and crinkled leaves. Lacinato Kale dates back to the 1700's and does well in all grow zones, with full or partial sunlight. Approx 8,500 seeds per oz.
Non-GMO Black Tuscan Kale seeds can be grown in all grow zones, with full or partial sun. Directly sow the seeds one fourth of an inch deep in moist, rich soil, with a pH level between 6.5 and 6.8. Space the seeds fifteen to eighteen inches apart, with two feet between rows. While growing, the soil must be kept moist, but care must be taken to not over water the plants. The outer leaves can be harvested between fifty five and sixty days after sowing. Continuous harvesting is possible if the bud is kept intact.
Black Tuscan Kale (Brassica oleracea 'Lacinato'), is a highly nutritious plant, and part of the mustard family. it's leaves are crumpled, but not curled like most other kale varieties. It will over winter in most zones. Considered by some to be the best tasting kale, the flavor is not too bitter. Frost actually improves the flavor as kale prefers a cooler environment. Water well during hotter months, but do not over water. Lucinato Kale is great steamed, in salads, and soups. Can be repeatedly harvested for a few weeks if lower leaves are harvested and the center bud is left intact. The long flat leaves make it great for making kale chips. Delicious and tender when stir-fried or steamed. The leaves of this extremely winter-hardy variety become sweeter after a hard frost or harvest leaves when young and tender.
