Forgot to mention that I started purple kale, can't recall the actual name. All my kales were from seeds. Last yr I was able to get some tamarillo (tree mator) seeds and so the kids and I planted some for experimental purposes, they grow. Fingers crossed. I want to try the tree collards again and this time I will give it more attention. I was working so may hrs and let the plants suffer. I will do better but I have to start me an area just for them.
So far all my kales have taken the temps like a champ. We got a bunch of days below 30°F. I read somewhere that kales can be grown for some yrs before they flower. So far that is true cause mine are going on their 3rd growing season.
I forget the scientific name, but there is a variety of Moringa that can be grown up North as an annual plant. Check the web to find it.
