Introducing Green Kale Sprouts: a variant of kale characterized by its dark, delicately curled leaves and mild brassica/mustard flavour, ideal for both harvesting baby leaves and bunching. To ensure optimal growth of these nutrient-rich greens, adhere to the following guidelines:

🌱 Seedling Height: Aim for seedlings to reach a height of 15cm-20cm, including the root system.

📏 Spacing: Plant rows should be spaced 35cm-45cm apart, with individual plants also spaced 35cm-45cm apart to facilitate optimal growth.

🥗 Harvest Time: Plan for a harvesting window of 7-9 weeks, though this duration may fluctuate based on your specific location and prevailing weather conditions.

🌡️ Growing Conditions: Green Kale Sprouts thrive in environments offering full to partial sun exposure. Optimal soil conditions include well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Consistent watering is crucial to encourage tender, sweeter leaves. These greens prefer slightly acidic soil and benefit from a shallow layer of mulch to maintain cool soil temperatures.

  • Cross between Curly Kale and Brussels Sprouts seed variety
  • Produces small-sized sprouts with a frilled appearance
  • Very uniform, vigorous plant frame and easy to deleaf
  • High number of sprouts per bush

Variety: Green Kale Sprouts belong to the Brassica oleracea species but represent a distinct cultivar with fine, curled leaves compared to the larger, broader leaves of traditional kale varieties.

Leaf Size and Texture: Green Kale Sprouts boast smaller, more delicate leaves with fine curling, contrasting with the larger, broader leaves of standard kale varieties.

Flavour: Both Green Kale and Kale Sprouts share a mild brassica/mustard flavor, but Green Kale Sprouts are particularly prized for their tenderness and sweetness, especially when harvested at a younger age.

Harvesting: While traditional kale is typically harvested by picking individual leaves or cutting entire stalks, Green Kale Sprouts are often harvested as baby leaves, suitable for both baby leaf harvesting and bunching.

Growing Conditions: While Green Kale Sprouts share similar preferences for growing conditions with traditional kale, such as full to partial sun exposure and well-drained, organically enriched soil, they may require slight adjustments in spacing and care due to their smaller size and delicate nature.

In summary, Green Kale Sprouts offer a delicate and tender alternative to traditional kale varieties, perfect for harvesting as baby leaves. While they share similarities with standard kale in terms of nutritional benefits and growing requirements, they differ in leaf size, texture, harvesting methods, and flavour profile, making them a unique addition to your garden and culinary repertoire.
