Red Russian is an Heirloom variety with 5″ wide Reddish purple leaves. The leaves reach up to 15″ long and are slightly fuzzy. Add it to smoothies and juices for a nutrient dense green, or add to stir fries for mega robust flavor. The Plant is very frost tolerant and the leaves even become more tender and appetizing after a hard frost. This tastes delectable with a honey mustard dressing!

Excellent source of vitamins C and A.

    These grew very large. Leaves and stalks were tender with almost a touch of sweetness. Not bitter at all, which is often a turn off for people. Buying again!

    Red Russian kale are my favorite variety of kale, out of several variety I grew, they are the most tender with least bitterness. They can be somewhat sweet during cold seasons in good soil. They prefer cooler weather compared to lacinato which can handle more heat.

    I grow these in containers last year and they produced surprisingly good yield. Not quite as cold hardy as I hoped but made it through a few rounds of fall frost. I’m growing this now hydroponically inside the house and they also do great.

    Updated on my review a year ago, I grew more of these this year both in ground and in container. They did great in ground too, and produce all the way from March to July in zone 6B

    This was my favorite so far. No matter what I did to them, they grew vary easy. We added this to all types of salads.

    This was our best performing leafy green in zone 8a last year! Handled our weather better than the lacinato kale we grew – it was slower to bolt and tolerated the cold/snow better in winter. Love throwing it in soups or cooking it up like collard greens!

    Planted this with Lacinato dinosaur kale. Pests seem to love the Lacinato, but left this alone, which makes me happy. This germinated quickly and is growing very well in a raised bed in the front yard. The taste is bright, a little sweet and really representative of fresh greens. I highly recommend this variety.
