This is a green, curly variety of kale that is great for juicing. This Curly Kale takes about 60 days to mature. It has around 200 seeds in a pack. Some say that the native Eskimos in Russia grow Kale to pasture their reindeer. I don't know if that is a fact, but one thing for sure is that all kale is very cold tolerant. Like, you can dig snow and have fresh salad types of tolerant greens. I suggest that you folks get your CSA shares to grow some. These will make excellent juice. All our seeds are Heirloom and Non-GMO. Happy growing!!!
