Red Russian Kale
Red Russian Kale is a different species from other kales, having the botanical name Brassica napus va pabularia - Relative plants include cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi. It is originally from Siberia and was introduced to North America by Russian traders in 1885.
Red Russian kale is full of vitamins K, C, and B6, as well as manganese, copper, calcium, and magnesium. One cup of cooked kale contains 1000% more vitamin C than one cup of cooked spinach.
Plant with vining beans, peas, or cucumbers, which protect them from the summer heat. Strawberries and roots like onions, radishes, carrots, and beets are friendly companions to leafy greens. Mix lots of flowers and herbs in the bed to ward off insects and attract beneficial ones. Most herbs work well with and compliment leafy greens.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
