Kale is a staple in Eastern European cooking. Ease of growth, variety of uses, nutrition and delicious flavor (particularly after a frost) make kale an ideal addition to any garden & diet. Tender, oak shaped, three foot leaves change from reddish green to red after a frost. May be left in the garden for harvest throughout the winter. 30 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 4-6 weeks before last frost, 1/2” deep. Keep well watered and fertilized. Transplant out just before last frost. Start at same time as Broccoli, Cabbage, and Cauliflower.

Outdoors- 1/2” deep, 2-4” apart in early spring with soil temperature 55 degrees. Thin seedling to 12-24” apart. Sow another planting in mid/late summer for fall crops.

Harvest- Pick young leaves starting at 8-10” from the middle upward.

Tips- Leaves become very sweet after frost. Use thinning’s or sow a heavy seeded row every 10-14 days for baby greens.

Red Russian Rocks

I’ve grown Red Russian for 4 yrs now. Wonderful tasty leaves as baby greens then later for salad, sautéed, or steam freezing. (Look @ massaged kale recipes online!) Not a bushy plant, I do 8” grid spacing in a raised intensive bed. Goes til last hard frost, maybe 3’ tall @ end of season. Just keep cutting lower leaves. Yummy!

Red Russian Kale grows well in tough conditions!

Our spring started out cold and wet and turned into hot and dry. The weather was totally weird but the Red Russian kale stayed tender and tasty. Interestingly, when it got hot (low 90s) it didn't bolt and stayed tender. We were so impressed that I moved 5 plants into our hydroponics greenhouse and they have survived the winter quite well. It truly is a tasty cut and come again plant.
