HEIRLOOM We love these gorgeous dark blue-green leaves, deeply savoyed and full of flavor. Though not as cold hardy as our other kales, the flavor and tenderness of Organic Lacinato | Dinosaur Kale is exceptional in the summer when most kale remains more tough.

    I struggled with germination and growth with this lacinato kale. Did not germinate well two years in a row when direct sown outdoor with 2 weeks in the 70’s and warmer soil. Tried again, in plastic pots as well as soil blocks indoors under lights. Even when babied along they did not do well and never amounted to much. Other kales (red Russian, dwarf) did well and grew well, including a 3.5 foot (!) kale that overwintered. Not these unfortunately – maybe a bad batch? Will order again before I give up. For reference, I am in Central Ohio 6a urban garden with both in-ground and raised beds.
