Diverse mix of napus kales that have been crossed with B. rapa. Napus leaf types vary from brilliant red to green to white Russian types; from super frilly to broad-leafed shapes; and skinny, short stems to broad, thick stems; and multiple combinations thereof. The plant diversity is all over the place & each individual plant is likely to have a completely different growth habit. Originally bud pollinated by Tim Peters in Oregon then continued by Adaptive Seeds.
Care: Plant 20-30″ apart in rows 24-36″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
