Red Ursa Kale

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

From Portugal, Germany and China, kale has made traditional soups and provided people with their staple greens. While Red Ursa is a relatively new addition to the rainbow of kales, its roots run deep. The Red Russian and Siberian kales originate from northern Europe and northern Asia, and some of the varieties have been traced back to Russian traders migrating to Canada in the late 1800s. Kale is a crop that has evolved and cross-pollinated over the years, and Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed in Corvalis, Oregon, has kept this tradition going with his kale breeding efforts. In the 90s he crossed a Siberian Kale with a Red Russian Kale to form what is now Red Ursa. In 1997, Red Ursa was entered into the National Variety trials and chosen as one of the top five vegetables of the year! This extra frilly version of a Red Russian kale with striking dark red to purple stems and rich green leaves. Tastes like kale should with meaty leaves complemented by a sweet stem. A delight eaten raw or cooked. (65 days to maturity, 24in- tall and wide)

What are the pros? Prolific, Heat Tolerant

What are the cons? None

Review:

Okay, just think Ragged Jack or Russian Red, but Bigger! Sounds Awesome right? That’s pretty much what you are getting out of Red Ursa. This variety is also heat and drought tolerant. I left it for 1 week in 90 degrees - plus temperatures without water and in full sun. It was not happy, but it survived!! All around great and beautiful Kale.

Review:

I started all my kale and collards the last of February and planted them in April. I had my first harvest the first part of May. This kale is beautiful, producing long slightly frilly leaves. They taste sweet with tender and sweet stalks. I've found that the kale stalks cook with the leaves very well. They are tender and sweet. This kale wilts rapidly but is easy to revive in cool water either in a container on the counter or in the fridge. This is one of my favorite kales that I've tried.

What are the pros? Stunning, very nice taste

What are the cons? Not pest resistant

Review:

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.
