Introduced by Burpee Co in 1924, this heavy all season producer grows fabulous 2’ high dark green crinkled leaves packed with fiber and nutrition. The crumpled leaves have a nice mild flavour, and are great fresh, steamed or frozen.

Growing Directions

Sow seeds in spring, 1/2” deep, 4-6” apart in full sun, when ground is workable and heavy frosts have past. Harvesting will bring new growth continually all season long. Will benefit from compost or manure amended soil.
