Kale – White Russian



2205  Brassica napus var. pabularia

21 days baby leaves, 50 days mature.

A sister kale to Red Russian, this Siberian variety can also tolerate cold, wet, and moist conditions. White Russian has tender, white stems and flat, broad, green leaves—it’s excellent eaten young in a gourmet greens mix or as mature leaves in a massaged kale salad. Interesting fact: since kale is a biennial, the plants for this seed crop were started and overwintered at the infamously windy Wild Rose Farm in Gilbert’s Cove, dug up in the spring, and brought over to Hope Seeds, where they shot up into seed production. That allowed Gilberte to grow a similar kale without crossing the varieties.
