All Stars Kale Art Pack

All Stars Kale Art Pack

Stellar Kale Varieties

Inventive plant breeder Tim Peters crafted this blend, initially named Gulag Stars, through a fusion of Brassica napus kale types (Russian kales) with glossier Brassica rapa varieties (mustards and Asian Greens), employing a technique known as bud pollinating. This method, akin to a form of astral projection in the botanical realm, facilitates the merging of two related yet distinct species. The outcome is a delightful kale mix featuring diverse shapes, colors, textures, and sizes, reminiscent of vibrant star-forming nebulae, varying from plant to plant.

The flavor of this kale mirrors that of other Russian kales, possessing a slightly sharper taste than Dino Kale or Vates Blue Curled Kale. This variety is ideal for those who appreciate the flavor of Asian greens but seek something heartier and longer-lasting in their garden. Perfect for salad baby leaves, it's also an excellent choice for aspiring breeders or seed savers. As kale is a biennial plant, you can grow the plants in the first year, overwinter the favored ones, and save the seeds in the second year.
