15 reviews for Blue Curled Scotch Kale

  1. Miranda Carpenter

    These seeds produced amazingly for me last year. I direct sowed them and had just about every one of them sprout. Great tasting Kale too!

    I think this variety may have eclipsed Red Russian as my favorite kale variety. They are very tender (relative to kale) and is the best variety for making kale chips, looks great in salad due to their texture and great steamed as well.

    My favorite kale to eat. It also seems to have less bug problems than the Red Russian kale during the summer. My oldest blue scotch is 2 years old right now. They soar through the winter here (zone 7a) without protection when they’re adults.

    I lost my first seedlings early on but my non-gardening friends have raved about the production and taste of theirs. Replanted and they are taking off with harvest soon to come.

    These plants grew like crazy and kept producing all season when planted in the fall. I stocked the freezer for smoothies but they make great chips as well. And don’t forget to steam or stir-fry with cauliflower. Yum. Time to order more seeds.

    I grew these in an indoor hydroponic garden and they germinated within 2 to 3 days which made me very excited. I harvest by removing the bigger leaves on the outside to allow the inner ones to continue growing and I can get a few leaves from each plant every other day. I love how perfectly curly the leaves look, they are exactly the kind of kale you want for kale chips.

    Delicious! Easy to grow

    I planted these in early spring and they grew very large and very productive. They survived two rounds of cabbage worms (I did spray with BT each time) and summer heat up to 100F.

    Between this and the Red Russian kale I grew, I just finished harvesting (late November) TONS of kale. I’m going to leave it in the garden and see if they overwinter (sometimes kale does in my zone: 6a).

    This was my first year growing MIGardener kale and this was by far the biggest, best year for kale. This Curly Scotch kept to their space in the garden better than the Red Russians, so they didn’t crowd out the lettuces and collards planted next to them – this type is well-suited to the SFG method.

    Love MIgardener Seeds!

    Love this Kale! I use it in smoothies and salads. I live in a place that gets a lot of rain, so thankfully I planted these plants in pots so I could move them to a dry place during our rainy season. Even when these plants get too much rain, they are hearty and always come back to life.

    These needs to be planted on the early spring. I tried succession planting them on the start of summer and none of them made it. They just become stunted. Germination rate is good and will try again this year to have a constant source of greens for smoothies.

    This variety of kale is my favorite perfect for soups, salads, stir frying, sauteing and smoothies

    One of the first kale I ever grew and was hooked. This is very easy to grow and we love it in our salads.

    PERFECT kale. 100% germination, this kale grows and grows and grows. It starts very early in the year, tolerates summer heat and carries on producing well past first frost. Tastes fantastic – raw, dehydrated, from frozen, in stir fries. My favourite for a kale caesar. I didn’t grow it this year in favour of trying new varieties and I regret it. This will be a mainstay in my garden as of next year.
