Winter Red (Red Russian) Kale

50-60 days. Winter Red Kale is an excellent variety for novice gardeners, thriving in most soil conditions and making a splendid addition to brilliant fall garden displays. Featuring wonderfully frilled bicolor leaves, it grows to a mature height of 22" to 36". Almost temperature tolerant, it may be sown directly into your garden from spring through early fall. Exceedingly quick growth makes it ideal for baby greens. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Ancient Egyptians believed that Kale had magical properties, not the least of which was a cure for hangovers. We cannot guarantee this remedy, but we do know that Kale is easily grown by even the most black-thumbed gardener. Direct-sow or raise transplants in late summer for fall and winter harvest since Kale becomes sweet and tender after being hit by a couple of frosts. This nutrient-packed vegetable grows quickly and is ideal for baby greens, trimmed when young to toss into salads. Or harvest larger leaves a few at a time; the plant will keep producing, over-wintering reliably in many regions. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
