4" Kale 'Red Russian'
Grows to a size much larger than regular kale, about 90 cm tall. The stems are tinged purple, and the large leaves are greenish gray. Purple colours intensify after the first frost as the weather cools, which also improves the flavour, making it sweeter in the fall. Also makes for an attractive ornamental plant.
How To Grow
Grow in full sun. Takes 60 days till maturity. Plants can be left outdoors all winter.
When To Harvest
Harvest largest leaves in the fall or early spring when they are sweetest, leave some of the smaller leaves for continues growth.
