Heirloom Vegetable Seeds
Italian heirloom is also known as Dinosaur Kale, Black Tuscan
Kale, Black Cabbage, and Black Palm. A hearty, nutritious kale
with vigorous dark green to black leaves, it traditionally is
used to add rustic flavor to soups, stews, but also blends
wonderfully in grain dishes. Try sautéed in olive oil with
garlic and tossed with pasta. Delizioso! If you plant it in the
spring, you can harvest the first shoots as tender young salad
greens and achieve full-sized plants in two months. But, you
must also try growing it in fall, because a little kiss from a
fall frost only makes it sweeter! Plants may over winter in mild
climates. Rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, K, calcium,
folic acid, and powerful anti-oxidants. Intense nutrition to
fuel the passionate gardener! See recipe inside packet for
Tuscan Kale Pesto.
When to plant outside: Early spring when soil
temperatures are at least 60 degrees for a late spring/summer
crop, in late summer for a fall crop, or (in USDA zone 7 or
warmer) you can sow in fall for a winter or very early spring
crop. Seed can also be sown in successive plantings every 3
weeks starting in early spring.

“Crunchy leaves”, “creamy white heart”, and “vigorous” are just a few of the
words that describe this variety. A mosaic virus tolerant heirloom, it grows
with upright, dark green slightly savoyed (crinkled) leaves that reach
When to start outside: RECOMMENDED. Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before
average last frost, and successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until
2 weeks before the first fall frost. (Skip very hot summers.) USDA zone 8 or
warmer: sow in fall for winter harvest.
When to start inside: Not recommended. (Since lettuce mixes are often
grown for baby leaves, it’s easier to sow directly outdoors rather than
trying to grow individual plants inside and transplanting.)
Tom Thumb, a miniature
English heirloom butterhead, is the perfect size for individual salads. Its
petite 4"-5" loose heads can be grown in containers, window boxes, or even
as an edible border along a path or flower bed. The sweet, tender heads with
buttery flavor are a gourmet treat any way you serve them. You can harvest
individual leaves as the plant grows, cut the entire plant off at ground
level, or twist out the small interior head to make a lettuce 'bowl' that
can be filled with your favorite salad ingredients. (Butterhead type lettuce
is rarely bitter, quick maturing, and they are also known as Boston or Bibb
lettuce.) This packet plants: Seven 10-foot rows or seven successive
plantings of 10-foot rows.
When to plant
outside: Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before the average last frost, and
successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before the first
fall frost. In USDA zone 8 or warmer, it can also be sown in fall for winter
harvest. When to start inside: 6 weeks before last spring frost and in
summer when soil temperatures are too warm outside to germinate lettuce
seed. Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: when thinning lettuce, use
the thinnings in salads. It can be planted in rows, but group plantings take
up less space and are attractive. Double or triple rows also work.
