Nero Di Toscana is a loose-leafed cabbage that dates back to the early 1800s. It has beautiful black-green leaves that are heavily savoyed. Popular in Tuscany and central Italy for making fabulous soups and stews. (60 days)

Each packet contains approximately 300 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors and transplant into the garden when two sets of true leaves develop. Plants are extremely hardy and can be grown among the earliest of cool-season crops. Allow approximately 15 inches between plants and 24 inches between rows.

Depending on variety, transplants should be ready to harvest in 6-8 weeks. Cut the stalk at the base of the head and compost the outer leaves. Some varieties will produce secondary heads when the main head is cut from the stem. Wash carefully and refrigerate for up to two weeks, if necessary.
