Kale - Red Russian - Brassica Napus (Pabularia group)
Biennial Heirloom. This rare, gourmet variety has red-purple veins on slate-green, wavy-margined leaves. Cool weather intensifies its color. Steamed lightly, the frilly leaves make an attractive garnish. If using in soup, add kale at the end to avoid overcooking.
