Kale is all the sweeter for light frosts, so plant this one as soon as the soil is workable and is at least 45 degrees. Beautiful plant too!

For kale aficionados, 'Red Russian' kale is like having your cake and eating it too! This is a beautiful plant, with flat, deeply cut, gray-green leaves veined and edged with purple. This variety can get fairly large if allowed to reach maturity, so consider planting this one in the ground or a large container. Outer leaves can be harvested as baby greens when 2"–3" tall, and any time when full-sized, beginning with the lowest leaves. The whole plant can be cut off at ground level at maturity. For fast regrowth, harvest up to only ⅓ of the plant at a time. Footnote: gardeners have praised this variety for its flatter, unruffled leaves because it's easier to clean, especially if aphids are a problem. The flat leaves also make this a great choice for baked kale chips, as they dry more evenly.
