  • An heirloom presumably brought to North America by Russian traders. 2-3 feet tall.

  • The characteristic red and blue green foliage of Red Russian Kale is especially striking during the colder months.

  • Tasty and tender, steam or sauté.

Planting Directions: Plant in spring when soil temperature is between 45 to 85˚, optimum 72˚. Plant in fertile soil enriched with compost or garden fertilizer 2-3 weeks prior to planting.
