Lacinato Kale, also known as Dinosaur Kale, is a highly nutritious and versatile vegetable that is easy to grow in your own garden. This variety of Kale produces dark green, tender leaves with a slightly sweeter and nuttier flavor compared to traditional Kale. It is a hardy plant that thrives in cool weather, making it a great option for early spring or fall gardening.
Sowing the Lacinato Kale seeds directly into the garden is recommended, as these plants don't do well with transplanting. The seeds can be sown in fertile, well-drained soil and kept consistently moist for best results. They typically germinate in 5-10 days and can be harvested in around 55-70 days.
In addition to being delicious in salads and smoothies, Lacinato Kale is also a great ingredient for soups, stews, and stir-fries. Its rich flavor and high nutrient content make it a great addition to any meal. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a beginner, growing Lacinato Kale is a great way to add a nutritious and delicious vegetable to your diet.
