KALE – RED RUSSIAN

Brassica napus

The old favorite is an excellent red-veined bunching kale. Sweeter and more tender than other kales during warm weather, yet also tolerates extreme cold. Plants have frilly purple-veined blue-green leaves tinged with reddish-purple. Colour deepens in the cold. It has a sweet taste, not bitter like traditional varieties of curly kale. It can be eaten as baby leaf or fully grown and still maintains its sweet flavor 60-376cm plant height.

Sow the seeds in a seedbed. When the plant is about 22cm high and four leaves have developed (about 6 weeks after sowing) transplant them to their final positions. They should be planted slightly deeper than they grew in the seedbed. Plant late summer/early spring.
