Improved Dwarf Siberian

65 days — 'Improved Dwarf Siberian' kale plants reach about fifteen inches in height and have large, deeply cut, frilled leaves that are bluish-green in color. Harvested at the young, immature stage, they are also excellent for baby greens.

A very old variety, the exact history of 'Improved Dwarf Siberian' kale is a bit elusive. 'Siberian' kale was mentioned by Vilmorin as early as 1856[1], it first shows up in American seed catalogs in the 1880s where is it also referred to as "German Greens," but by 1890, companies began listing it as 'Improved Siberian' and 'Improved Dwarf Siberian'.[2,3] Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 250 seeds.
