The result of 15 years of British breeding; a cross between the Kale and Brussels Sprouts species producing 'rosettes' of loose frilly edged buttons on a long stalk, in purples, greens and bicoloured leaves. Also known as Kalettes. However, the flavour and nutritional content of this Brassica is akin to spring greens rather than Brussels sprouts - perfect for those who don't enjoy sprouts! Stands in condition throughout the winter, very winter hardy. The loose buttons are easy to pick off the stems and are perfect for adding to stir fries, serving steamed or microwaved and make very nutritious winter greens. One seed packet could produce enough crop to last up to five months supply.
Transplant when large enough to handle, about 5 weeks from sowing, to 50cm (20in) between plants each way. Plant firmly and keep well watered until established. Prefers a well drained, moist, rich soil. Fleece against caterpillar and aphid as necessary, and net against pigeons during the winter.
