Thomas Jefferson's vegetable garden commonly included various Kales such as German, Russian, Delaware, Malta, and Scotch types. Dwarf Blue Curled Kale is a variety of Scotch kale with attractive and delicious blue-green leaves developed from Dwarf Green Curled Kale, an heirloom variety described in Fearing Burr's Field and Garden Vegetables of America (1863) as a "hardy and comparatively low-growing" kale with finely curled leaves.

Direct sow seeds 1-2 weeks before last frost date in spring, and 10-12 weeks before first frost in fall in well-drained, fertile soil. Kale is best grown as a spring, fall, or winter crop, as cool temperatures and frosts enhance the flavor. Approximately 100 seeds per packet.
