This tasty Russian variety produces leaves that are only slightly frilled and of top quality. 16-inch plants are very hardy and productive.

Best plant from Baker Creek
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Minimal water, frost tolerant

What are the cons? Not suitable for indoors

Review:

My favorite plant from Baker Creek! At first, I didn't like the flavor, but then got used to it and found that tender young baby leaves are much better than big rubbery leaves. I recommend planting a long row for each person you intend to feed, since you're only going to be harvesting one baby leaf (or possibly two on occasion) from each plant, each time you go to make a meal. Mixing it with some mild lettuce leaves in a salad makes it delicious. Seems to be a C4 photosynthesizer. When I fail to water, it simply slows down instead of dying. It could easily out compete against grass and weeds. Big, rubbery adult leaves seem to be strong enough to survive through frost, and could even help provide some frost protection to nearby plants under those big leaves. Hardy, nutritious, easy to grow, what an awesome plant! The only downside: this plant does not grow very well under CFL's indoors. Needs real sunshine. Adult leaves never stop growing in size, also making it poor for indoors.

Review:

This kale variety is very easy to grow and a huge producer, very tasty. I am growing it in zone 10 and it holds up through some very hot days with very little maintenance. I would highly recommend this kale.

Horseradish flavor...
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Slower

Review:

I grew this and one other variety of kale this year. The other kale was more tolerant of the summer warmth (I'm in New York, so not terribly hot here). This kale really took off once the weather cooled down. It seemed to have a rather mild flavor at first, but once we had a good hard frost, it had a very distinct horseradish flavor to it. My husband and I didn't mind it at all, but I heard some grumbles from my children when I used it in their soup. I appreciated that the leaves on this one didn't get tough and remained tender, but the flavor of my other variety was much more mild. Again, I sort of enjoyed slightly spicy flavor, but those with kiddos might want to be aware of this possibility.

Our Main Kale
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Reliable, Good for Juicing

What are the cons? None

Review:

This has become our main Kale for my garden in Cental PA and my garden in Easter PA (Warmer). Use Kale for juicing and in cooking. Name says Dwarf but it grows as big or bigger than the other Kales. Seems pretty self sufficient, if you can keep it from getting too dry it does fine all season long. Very easy to grow from seed.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great flavor

What are the cons? Susceptable to cabbage worms.

Review:

This is a mild flavored kale. I compare the taste somewhere between broccoli and brussel sprouts. I went away for a few days and the caterpillars ate it up, so I let it flower. The bumble bees absolutely loved the flowers!!
