Red and White Russian is a unique kale blend. The tender, colourful leaves are curly and serrated. Young leaves can be added to salads, while mature leaves can be cooked or steamed.
Other kales have been less tolerant of wet soils and rainy winter weather than White Russian. It doesn't mind if its feet get wet, making it ideal for winter crops. Frost improves the flavour, and even floods don't seem to bother it. White Russian is the kale to choose if you live in a wet climate during the fall, winter, and/or spring.
