(Approximately 700-1000 seeds/pkt. unless otherwise noted)  Kale tastes best after a good freeze (25 deg. F).  It can be harvested down into the teens with good flavor. The past year we did a hardiness test. That Fall was one of rapid change and shortly after our first freeze  it dropped into the teens and then we had several days of 8-10 degrees at night and not above freezing during the day. Tuscan was the only one that had serious damage and was basically not usable after that. UPDATED FOR 2024
