Red Russian Kale
25 days baby, 50 days full size
Large lobed leaves are bright green with purplish-red stems;
leaves also obtain a purple hue when exposed to cooler temperatures.
Plants consistently out perform our expectations with great yield and
cold-hardiness. Sweetest just after a few frosts, this dependable winter
green can either be protected with row cover or not for keeping through
the winter and is the most tender of all kale varieties. Also an excellent
early green in the spring, kale can be sown in a hoophouse or cold frame
or into early ground like spinach. Originating in Siberia, Red Russian kale
was introduced to the Americas through trade in the late 1800’s.
