The Kale Red Winter, 'Brassica oleraceae (Acephla)', is a rare strain of Kale that has very tender, sweet leaves compared to other kales. Most Kale gets sweeter as the first frost hits. Red Winter, an improved Red Russian Kale, is sweet all the time and it is also very tender. Red Winter is excellent for your mesclun salad mixes, tasty garnishes, and lightly cooked dishes. The red-veins, wavy margins, and foliage that resembles oak leaves makes Red Winter almost dramatic looking in the garden.Plant in the spring, 4 weeks before the last expected frost or 10 to 12 weeks before first fall frost. Kale tastes best when grown in the fall. The soil needs to be well drained and have lots of organic matter. Kale can be harvested by cutting off the entire plant or by periodically stripping off the lower leaves.
Scientific Name : Brassica oleraceae (Acephla)
