Red Russian Kale

Red Russian Kale

Regular price $3.00 Sale

This delicious grey-green kale is pretty enough to plant among the flowers. Much larger than regular kale (2 to 3 tall), the stems are purplish and the leaves are shaped like big oak leaves and colored a velvety gray green. The purple colors become richer after frost, when the flavor becomes sweeter. Surprisingly, the big leaves are very tender and delicious. Garden Hints: Kale requires good cultivation; mulch or hoe frequently to keep soil loose and weed-free. Plants may be left outdoors all winter. Frost improves flavor.
