KL451A - Kalettes Snowdrop
Snowdrop matures in winter, after Autumn Star and Mistletoe. Sown and transplanted all together, they will produce a very long harvest window. Prepare to harvest in January and February, when most other crops are finished or fast asleep. The little sprouts are sweetened by frosty temperatures, and the colours are very much enhanced.
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.
