Red Russian is one of the most popular types of kale to grow! The leaves are sweeter and more tender than most kale varieties, and the red veins on the leaves indicate the high mineral and nutrient content that this plant offers. The baby leaves are excellent in salads, and the mature leaves are tasty sautéed with garlic and a sprinkle of salt. Red Russian kale is cold tolerant, and the leaves are even sweeter when allowed to experience a mild frost.
