Kalette (formerly known as Flower Sprouts or Brusselkale) is a hybrid plant brand name for kale sprouts, bred using traditional breeding techniques, they are a cross between kale and Brussels sprouts. The plant is touted as being a highly nutritious vegetable that may be eaten as raw or cooked. "Kalette" is actually a brand name for the vegetable "kale sprouts," which were introduced to the U.K. market in 2010 under the name Flower Sprouts. Its flower-like florets are open to about 2 inches (51 mm) in diameter. Three bicoloured varieties are planted for different harvest times: for early-season, mid-season, and late-season harvests. Decorative florets are optimized when planted in fertile soils with a pH above 6.5-7.5. In dry weather, the plants require careful fertilization and regular irrigation.
