Crops 30-35 weeks from sowing. A delicious autumn, winter, spring vegetable. Sow 18mm (¾") deep on a finely raked ‘seedbed’. (Hybrid types may be started in trays and subsequently planted out.) Plant firmly in their final positions 60cm (2') apart in July-early August. Harvest leaves as required from October-March. TOBY'S TIP: Remove any discoloured or diseased leaves and apply further fertiliser in spring to boost further leaf production. You can also use the seed for ‘sprouting’ as seedlings for a nutritious salad.
HEALTH BENEFITS: High in vitamins A & C. CULINARY HINTS: Pick young leaves and stir fry or steam to maximise nutrient content.
