Description

Kalettes® comes from crossing kale with Brussels sprouts – a natural process, since they are both members of the Brassica family which also includes cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Its fantastic flavour is the result of combining the complex taste of the sprout with the mild, sweet 'nutty' taste of the kale. Its taste is milder and sweeter than a Brussels sprout making it very appealing for children and adults alike. You can leave them raw and maintain their nutty flavour, or cook them steamed, microwaved, stir-fried, boiled or blanched. Finally it is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. In addition, they are a good source of vitamin B6. With twice as much vitamin C and B6 as traditional Brussels sprouts, indeed Kalettes® are a nutritional wonder!

Sowing Advice
