Is Kale Annual or Biennial?
As an experiment I'm growing kale instead of collards this year as a late season green. My red Russian kale is doing wonderfully and is attractive to look at too. But now I read that kale is an annual plant and goes to seed the first year, but in another place it says that kale is a biennial meaning it won't go to seed the first year.
What is correct?
Collards are wonderful because they don't go to seed that first year, and produce greens until frozen solid and buried in the snow. Have I made a mistake growing kale instead, and will my kale plants go to seed mid-summer like mustard does before I want to harvest them?
