Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Kalettes is a brand-new brassica hybrid of Brussel sprouts and kale! This cross of the two produces ‘rosettes’ of loose, frilly edged buttons borne on a long stalk, in a mix of bi-coloured green and purple leaves. The nutritional values and flavour resemble more of a spring green than a Brussel sprout. It is an excellent hardy vegetable which will be amazing in stir fries, steaming or boiling. Height 75cm (30”) and 50cm (20”).

Height Up to 75cm (30in)
Spread Up to 50cm (20in)

12 kalette plug plants (kb9655)

Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting Kalettes® plants outdoors in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in advance in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant brassicas at a distance of 60cm (24") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
Water Kalettes® regularly and do not allow them to dry out as this may impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and bring insect larvae to the surface. Remove any yellowed or diseased leaves as they occur. Sprouts can be harvested from early autumn through to late winter.
