Kale, Red Russian
Originally from Russia but introduced to the US via CanadaÑa good indication of its cold-hardiness! Their beautiful red and purple stems are just as appealing as their large, wide, lightly lobed leaves. Red Russian is one of the most popular varieties of kale, setting that classic "kale look" of large, lobed leaves. It is especially tender when eaten as a baby green or massaged into a salad with a pinch of salt.
