55-60 days. A stunning ornamental, this is also one of the best-tasting kales we have tried! The incredible beauty of this variety belies its sweet flavor and tender texture. White midribs and splashed ivory and green foliage make a show in the landscape and on the plate. This cool weather-loving kale is ideal for edible landscaping and container gardening; the plants stand 2-2.5 feet tall with stunning bi-colored foliage. Young leaves will be all green, and as they mature, they will become splashed with white. A real crowd pleaser! This nutritious vegetable contains loads of vitamin C, almost as much as orange citrus fruit!
