Black Magic

Black Magic


Brassica oleracea sabauda
Rich, very dark blue kale with a rosette plant habit making it easy to harvest. Black Magic has a sweet flavor, a vigorous regrowth and a good uniformity. It also resists bug damage. Throughout the season, new leaves will appear, providing you with a continuous harvest.
CULTURAL PRACTICES: Sow in early spring, or June to July, in fertile soil with a pH of 6.5, 6 mm deep and 2.5 cm apart. Seedlings should be thinned out to space 50 cm apart. The plant will mature in about 60 days, with best growth in cool conditions. Do not plant where Cole crops have been planted during the two previous years in order to avoid disease.
