What are the pros? greens all winter

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grow scotch kale every year, the only year we had a failure was the year the chinook melted all the snow and there was no covering for the plants when the weather got seriously cold again. Otherwise they survive nicely under a blanket of leaves or straw, and a tarp over the top to prevent ice forming in the blanket. We harvest it all winter long. We believe lack of fresh plant matter is a big contributor to SAD up here (canned food, even home grown, doesn't have the same effect) and so kale is always one of the first plants on the list when planning the new year's garden.

What are the pros? Survived Snow and arctic temps

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

Sowed this in July, transplanted in mid August. Winter here has been terrible; snow, freezing temps and unrelenting bad weather. I gave this plant absolutely zero protection. However, I took a shovel out to the field two weeks ago and dug out my kale, buried under 3 feet of snow. Still alive, still blue green, and even sweeter than standard kale. No one can believe my kale is still alive. I can hardly believe it either, but it was a pure joy to eat this fresh vegetable in March.

What are the pros? easy, easy, easy to grow

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

This kale was so easy to grow. I started some seeds indoors, then transplanted early in the season and planted some directly outdoors at the same time. Both did excellent and required minimal work. I will likely start the seeds inside this year as the plans transplanted easily and the kale was ready really early in the season by doing so.

What are the pros? Uber Cold Hardy

What are the cons? Short height/Plant plenty

Review:

Got this pack of seeds as a Baker's Creek "freebie" in my order last spring. I wish now I had gotten a lot more! Sowed it just like turnip greens on a raised bed as an experiment and it is absolutely GORGEOUS! The cold blasts we had in November have not fazed it in the least. This one's a winner!

What are the pros? Very bug resistant, easy care

What are the cons? slow starter

Review:

I grew these this summer, and although they had a slow start compared to other kales, slow and steady wins the race. These have required no care once they took off. Huge quantities of tasty leaves -- perfect for kale chips or dehydrating to make kale powder. Also good sauteed with onion and garlic.
