SKU: B00GZ8O1T2 Categories: , Tags: ,


Easy to grow, for baby leaf or mature winter plants. Unusual dark wrinkled leaves, can be eaten raw or cooked. Excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A.

Outdoors: sow thinly April-September, in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, moist, fertile soil. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin to 45cm (18″) apart. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Keep moist. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest baby leaves from June. Or sow indoors, March-May, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15°C (60°F) is ideal. Transplant 5cm (2″) apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, 45cm (18″) apart, during May-June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest mature plants from September to March
