Very tender and mild, a pre-1885 heirloom variety. Oak type leaves have a red tinge, and stems are a purplish-red. One of our favorite kales. Great flavor.

Review:

I grew a big bunch of this under my growlights over the winter and when my other plants were all ready to transplant I moved the grown kale into the garden where it has continued to thrive. I also direct seeded a couple rows which are growing wonderfully.

What are the pros? Easy to grow & taste great!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This kale is fool proof - easy to grow in the hot and humid Texas heat with little to no attention. However, the raised bed we have for this kale is primarily in the shade and allows for the big roots to grow directly into the ground. It gets morning and early afternoon sun. The current bed has 8 big healthy plants that are over a year old and still producing. 8 seeds, 8 plants for a 100% germination rate. Highly recommended. We cut out the thick stem and sautee with olive oil or coconut oil, garlic, onion, seasonings, and maybe a splash of soy sauce (the Bragg natural soy sauce alternative).

Review:

On Nov 1 after the first snow of this year I picked a mess of this kale, it had been producing all summer. It taste great,even raw. I some seedling now in a cold frame to see how it works in late fall. You have to be diligent because the cabbage worm and harlequin Beatles love it to, I use B T for worms and dish soap for Beatles

Review:

It is dry in eastern Washington, and can get dry. I planted Ragged Jack last fall in October and hoped for the best. Three times last winter temps dropped to around zero F. and practically no snow. I did not cover the seed with mulch or expect to see anything alive in spring. Surprise! Looked like 100% germination. Hottest summer in living memory followed and this kale is healthy and ready for the next meal. Mighty good stuff, whether thinning the young plants or cutting big leaves.

Review:

I LOVE this kale. Not only did I seed indoor and outdoors,I even spilled some in the yard. All of them came up! I plant 5-9 per square foot in my raised beds.The leaves taste great big or small and are easy to clean and cut since Red Russian is not as big or curly like other kales. Most of the time I just pick off the stem and throw straight in a soup or salad. It's august and has been consistently in the upper 80's and it's still producing a ton! ( unless the cabbage worms beat me) I grow this every year and will continue!
