The same large, deeply pleated leaves as Genovese that everyone loves, but instead of green, Red Freddy boasts deep Roman purple.

Review:

I've grown Red Freddy two years straight and am completely pleased with this variety. It's a beautiful purple color with specks of green throughout. Visually stunning and a nice contrast to other items in the veggie patch. It's also very hardy and tastes great. A must have variety for me every year.

What are the pros? Can thrive in extreme heat

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This can survive Arizona summers. It sprouted without problems and has been growing in a shallow pot in mostly full sun and still going strong in 115 degrees (shade temp). The leaves get a bit hardened off if it is under watered in extreme heat (expected). Tastes great and goes well on pizza and pasta. This is a very hardy plant! It grows a pretty deep green when over 105 degrees and grows purple in cooler temps. This is a winner!
