A sister variety of Red Russian, it has the same moderately dissected and frilled leaves, but with white and green mid-veins. From a flavor standpoint, there’s no question that the Siberian/Russian kales are unequaled. Very sweet after a touch of frost (and better tasting than coffee, Kahlua and cream; “The Dude” loves it!). It’s also hangover-free! Tolerates wet soil and is as hardy as its name implies. Matures in 36 days.
Care: Plant after the danger of hard frost is over. Space transplants 8″ apart in rows 24″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
