Dinosaur kale is a subspecies of Brassica oleracea and is a biennial herbaceous leafy plant belonging to the mustard/cabbage family, Brassicaceae. Dinosaur kale is native to coastal southern and western Europe. The plant grows up to 3 to 7 feet tall. The leaves make up the majority of this plant and are large, blue-green, slightly narrow, and bumpy textured, giving this plant its common name. Dinosaur kale is commonly grown as a food crop as the leaves are edible and full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The plant is resistant to cold temperature and thrives in moist well draining soil, growing in full sun to partial shade. Water regularly when soil appears dry, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zone 1a-11b. 

Dinosaur kale seeds should be sown at a depth of ¼  to ½ inch and spaced 1 foot apart. Sow seeds in moist, well draining, nutrient dense soil and keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet. Ideal germination temperatures range from 60°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 2 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
