Planting & Care

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.

Planting & Growing: Kale grows best in cool climates and may survive winter. Start seeds indoors 6 weeks before the last frost or seed directly as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant mid-July for fall harvests.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest young leaves for salads. Older leaves are best steamed or cooked. Unlike most kale varieties, Red Russian is sweet flavored even before a frost.
