Red Russian Kale Seeds grow leaves that are flat, toothed, grey-green leaves with bright purple stems and veins really brighten and sweeten after frosts. Tender for salads and good for bunching, the red and purple hues turn a rich, dark green color when cooked. Red Russian kale may be richer in vitamins and minerals than other greens and is very disease resistant. Heirloom seeds.
Tender kale leaves are a popular ingredient in baby leaf salad mixes or as full size bunches. This organic strain has very smooth gently lobed baby leaves. Highly cold tolerant, this kale can overwinter in moderate climates. (B. napus.)
Days to maturity: 21 days for baby leaves, 50 days to full size
