Market farm varietyPrice From: $2.90
Rare gourmet variety with red-purple veins on slate-green leaves. Cooler weather intensifies color. Unlike most kale varieties, Red Russian is sweet flavored even before a frost. Steamed lightly, the frilly leaves are an attractive garnish. Refrigerate or use promptly after harvest.$28.50
Rave reviews from National Gardening Testers who rated it in the top five new varieties for 1998. Developed by Frank Morton from Oregon. Prominent ribs and veins vary in shades from pink to purple. Leaves are a similar blue/green as Red Russian, but are much more frilly on the ends of the broad leaves. Vigorous grower can be cut repeatedly and grows back well. Mild flavor during the summer with increased sweetness after frost.$3.55

Similar colored leaves as Red Russian, but with striking white midrib and veins. This kale is the sweetest, mildest tasting kale we've found. More cold-tolerant than Red Russian, this high quality, semi-savoyed kale is hardy into the single digits when mulched.$3.55
