Description

Kale - White Russian - Brassica napus (Pabularia group)

Hardy Biennial White Russian is a white-ribbed cousin of the heirloom Red Russian kale. Grow both these sweetest of kales for colorful salads. White Russian is the best kale for wet soils. The word Russian in its name means that it’s cold hardy. Pick this as baby or adult kale.

Did You Know? In Scotland kale was such a vital crop that the word "kail" was synonymous with "food".

Soil & Water: Kale will thrive in any moderately fertile soil with good drainage, organic matter, and a pH range of 5.5-6.5. It needs regular, even watering to avoid bitterness.
