    Description:  First introduced in the 1930s, these large plants with dark green leaves provide large harvests with a mild flavor, similar to cabbage.

    Planting Instructions:   75 days.  Start seeds 1/4" deep indoors 4-5 weeks before transplant outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked and plants have been hardened off.  Alternately, sow seeds directly in early spring in well-prepared soil in a location that receives full sun. Thin plants to 18" apart. Can be harvested throughout season to encourage growth.
