Red Russian Kale Seed Organic
Our Red Russian Kale seed is certified organic. (60 days) Open-pollinated. Called Buda Kale by Fearing Burr in 1863, Ragged Jack by Vilmorin-Andrieux in 1885, and Communist Kale in 2006 by workers at Darthia Farm in Gouldsboro, ME. Russian traders brought this Siberian heirloom to Canada in the 19th century. It has undergone a rousing revival in recent years. Vigorous edible landscape plant a big hit for its tenderness and delicate flavor. Its oakleaf foliage colors after fall frosts. Use soon after picking, or chill leaves in cold water; otherwise wilts quickly. Red and purple veining changes to dark green when cooked. Also a popular variety for microgreens. Tolerates outside temperatures of 14° F double-covered under floating row cover. 200 seed per pack.
