Red Russian Kale - Vegetable Garden Seed

Red Russian Kale (Brassica napus pabularia), is also known commonly as Ragged Jack, like most other kales, is highly nutritious and great for salads. It gets its name from its origins in Siberia. Red Russian Kale is medium sized and more tender than other kale varieties. It has a mild sweet flavor and is great for salads, especially as a baby green. Will over-winter when planted in late fall. Frost improves the flavor, so if planted for a fall harvest, wait for the first frost to sweeten it.

Red Russian Kale will grow in all zones but does best in the cooler climates. It like full sun, but a little shade will be beneficial in the hottest climates. If harvested properly, kale will keep growing so you can get more crop from the same plant. Clip the bottom leaves first and leave the upper leaves near the bud intact.

Red Russian Kale is excellent for salads, and baby greens but can also be steamed, blanched, added to stews, soups, and stir fries.
