Brassica oleracea 'acephalus'
Red kale produces lots of flat toothed, grey-green leaves with a central purple-red stem. The red colour intensifies as temperatures decrease in the fall. Leaves turn a rich, dark green when cooked. Soft tender texture when braised or for salads. Red Kale is vitamin rich and very winter hardy. This kale variety arrived in Canada somewhere around 1885.

How to Grow
Sow seed directly outdoors 1cm (1/2") deep in early spring or from June to early July in rows 60cm (24") apart. Thin seedlings to 30cm (12") apart. Kale is very cold tolerant and develops its best flavour after the fall frosts.
