|Brassica oleracea Acephala|
Family: Brassicaceae / Cruciferae
Kale, Curly-leafed Cabbage
Origin: Mediterranean, Asia Minor
Kale is native to the Mediterranean or to Asia Minor. It was introduced to America from Europe as early as the 17th century.
Flowering Kale is an unusual yet colorful presence in the late summer and autumn garden. This frost tolerant annual should be grown in full sun in a moist, well-drained soil. The brightly colored foliage can be various shades of pink to purple. The plants are best when used for late season color.
Kale produces seed in the second year. It is grown from seed as an annual. Culture is similar to that for cabbage and collards.
