‘Darkibor’ is a hybrid kale developed by international vegetable seed breeder, Bejo Seeds. This is a vigorous variety that produces strong yields of frilly blue-green leaves. Among the darkest-colored kale varieties, ‘Darkibor’ leaves resist yellowing and can be harvested in most areas just 50-60 days after planting, slightly quicker than many kale varieties. This variety is suitable for late summer or fall harvests.
‘Darkibor’ kale grows upright and sturdy and is easy to care for. Once the plant is established in the garden, harvesting fresh, outer leaves will encourage continuous growth. Snap or cut each leaf off where it meets the stem to help keep the plant healthy. The tightly curled leaves make an attractive garnish or enjoy this “superfood” in salads, soups, and stir-fries. Kale is high in vitamins A, C and K among other nutrients.
Excellent for flavoring a variety of dishes. Delicious when lightly steamed or boiled. Superb for adding flavor to soups, stews and casseroles. Wash fruits, vegetables and herbs thoroughly before eating.
