Review:

This also survived a very tough spring with hot winds and several hailstorms and flooded garden, along with scarlet kale. They took a beating that the tomatoes and peppers could not (planted those 3 x this spring) Will plant more of these kales and will try others, in the future. Like the scarlet kale, the Dinosaur Kale was started indoors, broadcast method, thinnings used as mircogreens until transplant. DH did the transplanting and i had to chuckle that he just put the entire bunch in the ground, as a clump, when i had envisioned spacing them apart. Now, after the storms, i think that this 'clump method' did far better than if it had been done 'my way'. Mild taste, tender, just lovely in a kale salad with a little scarlet kale. This is a real fave. I cannot see much reason for us to struggle with head cabbage, after trying this. Will look very nice in front of a short hedge of scarlet kale. Does well indoors, too.

I put these seeds directly in the ground for Fall/Winter growth...required little to know water..harvested all winter..great leafy green to add to salads. Would recommend.

What are the pros? Versatile

What are the cons? Mine got a bit lanky

Review:

Once these got established, they are easy to maintain. I have heavy pest pressure on all fronts, but with regular care these fare well. Love that the leaves can store well bagged in the fridge for quite a while. These plants have spanned all season, and are now so tall as that some need bamboo stakes after rain and wind. I do have shorter days due to tall trees on all sides of property, but they still fare well. Versatile kale for soups, chips, or sauteed. Not too strong.

Review:

This is my favorite kale! So happy I no longer need to purchase it in the store. It has been surviving the very hot temperatures here in Phoenix, there has been some days close to 115! It still looks great and continues to produce. I do keep burlap shade cloth over my plants to help with the heat. Easy to germinate, great tasting. very ornamental looking.

Review:

I planted my seeds in my soil in November of 2013, in the Central Valley of California. I had around 10 plants. We would go out and pick leaves and add them to soups, spaghetti, salad, sandwiches, smoothies, even brownies a couple times! Then in April, we had to move. I didn't want to leave them all, so I transplanted one into a pot and it rode to Arizona in the back of the moving truck. It stayed in that pot and continued to grow. Last week I made a large raised garden bed and planted it in there and it's still alive! Today is August 6, 2015. The temperature here this summer has ranged from 90's to 114 degrees. So, I'm going to buy more seeds and see what happens!
