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.
