Description

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. The flavour and nutritional content of Kalettes® is akin to spring greens rather than Brussels sprouts - perfect for those who don't enjoy sprouts! A superbly hardy vegetable, standing in good condition throughout the winter. 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.

Companion planting: Try growing Brassicas with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.

How to Grow
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting Kalettes® plants outdoors in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in advance in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant brassicas at a distance of 60cm (24") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
More Info
Water Kalettes® regularly and do not allow them to dry out as this may impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and bring insect larvae to the surface. Remove any yellowed or diseased leaves as they occur. Sprouts can be harvested from early autumn through to late winter.
