Cultivation & harvest

Kale thrives optimally in nutrient-rich soils with good water-holding capacity.


In preparation, the curly leaves must be cut from the stalk of kale, as well as remove the thick midrib. Steamed or boiled kale is used as a side dish or in stews. Traditionally, kale is prepared hearty in classic dishes with smoked pork loin. Other uses include soups or flavorful smoothies. If kale is cooked only briefly, it can also be used as a salad.


Fresh kale keeps for about two days in the crisper drawer of the fridge.
