KL449A - Kalettes Autumn Star
Kalettes are a new hybrid of kale and Brussels sprouts, bred using traditional techniques. Like Brussels sprouts, the kalettes form along the stem of each plant, but they are open like miniature kale plants, rather than closed like sprouts. Each one is about 5cm (2") in diameter, and they can be harvested for fresh raw eating, or cooked as an exciting new side dish. Try them steamed or briefly sautéed, or toss them into soups and stir-fries. Autumn Star is the earliest of the kalettes to mature. Expect plants the same size and shape as Brussels sprouts or mature kale. The ideal harvest time is in the fall, during cooler weather: Transplant in May or mid-June for the best results.
