HOW TO GROW SIBERIAN KALE

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, plant out 4 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 13 weeks before first frost, without additional protection. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 weeks later. Plants are hardy when small but may not feed you until spring. Direct sow anytime after last frost up to 6 weeks before first frost. For seed production, plant in late summer in the Pacific Northwest and coastal British Columbia for a more cold hardy plant. Becomes sweeter with frost and edible to about 22–25˚F. Survival at low temps 10˚F or cooler requires good mulch or snow cover to protect from wind freeze. Will cross with rutabagas. Row covers reduce cabbage worms and extend winter harvest. Soil pH 6.1-6.5. Hardiness zones 3-9. Biennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 9,000 seeds per ounce. Average 112M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1 mile.

Soil Temp. Germ. 55-75˚F

Judged most cold-hardy kale in trials at Garden City Seeds (Montana) circa 1995, and voted the best tasting among farm crews at High Mowing Seeds in Vermont, and at Gathering Together Farm. Tolerates water saturated soil better than any other kale we grow, lone survivors in two flood years and the annual low spots. Leaves are dissected like Red Russian, but with whitish stems and veining. Vigorous! Tested negative for black rot and black leg.
