Kalettes Making Debut at Fresh Summit



SANTA MARIA, CA – Growers and marketers of Kalettes™ are unveiling the new Brussels sprouts and kale hybrid at Fresh Summit.

Kraig Kuykendall, Sales Manager“We are very excited by the reception to Kalettes from both consumers and the trade, and with all of the media attention we have been receiving,” said Kraig Kuykendall, Sales Manager of Tozer Seeds America. “Supply hasn’t caught up with demand yet, but crops are in the ground and getting ready for harvest. We are looking forward to seeing it on store shelves and in restaurants in a big way this coming spring.”

As we previously reported, Tozer Seeds has entered into exclusive marketing agreements this summer with six companies to grow and market Kalettes™. 

The companies included are: 4Earth Farms, Classic Salads, Mann Packing, Ocean Mist Farms, Southern Specialties and WP Rawl.  Also in the agreement, Kalettes seeds are sold by Johnny’s Select Seeds to small farmers and home growers.

Even though supplies remain limited for fall, the companies are giving customers a preview of what’s in store for upcoming seasons.  Check them out at:

Kalettes are currently available through 4Earth Farms and Mann Packing and in limited quantities through other companies with distribution increasing throughout the winter, according to a press release.  Kalettes will be available to both retailers and food service distributors directly through the companies.
