What are the pros? Stunning, very nice taste
What are the cons? Not pest resistant
I grew this because it looked so pretty and indeed it is stunning to look at. It would be gorgeous in a fall planting. It tastes excellent, with a hearty flavor and none of the bad aftertaste of some kale. It is softer than Red Russuan which makes it more versatile. Red Russian is delicious cooked, but when it gets very large it gets a bit prickly and you cant use the leaves raw. So far this kale is keeping its smoothness. This kale is vulnerable to cabbage worms, so be diligent with picking them.
