This variety is a full savoy for the latest winter/first spring slot. The dark blue sturdy plants are upright and very slow to bolt. Plants are known to go into the winter small, and then fill out in late winter. When seeded early July, they are ready for harvest March to April.
Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
These hardy varieties hunker down during the cold temperatures and heavy rains of winter, waiting to take off when light and warmth return. Harvest in late winter and spring. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
