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:

Im growing this as baby kale. Started it early in the season, way up here in zone 3b. It matured quick, tastes great and just keeps coming back. It has been an amazing seller and I constantly get the feedback that its the best kale people have ever had.

Review:

I planted Ragged Jack in October of '13 and reviewed it in '14. One of the seeds came up spring of '15 and grew despite being overshadowed by indeterminate tomatoes. It was hammered by aphids and barely grew, but as soon as we had a frost it looks wonderful. We'll enjoy it again this winter.

What are the pros? Large plants

Review:

Easy to grow, drought resistant. Our peacocks absolutely love the stuff. I would cut a few leaves every day and cut them up. The birds would actually come up to fence and wait for me to slide the kale into their pens. Will be growing a bunch more this year, although, I've covered the plants and will see how they come through winter.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Not all that heat tolerant

Review:

I'm growing several Kale varieties right now. This one is my least favorite AT THE MOMENT. It's August in SoCal.. My White Russian kale is HUGE. They were planted at the same time. Maybe red Russian does much better in the fall/winter? I don't know. I see posts stating that this variety is heat tolerant. I disagree. It's the least tolerant of the kale varieties I'm growing and it hasn't been over 100 degrees in SoCal this summer. GREAT TASTING THOUGH!
