A lovely curled “red” kale that produces lots of delicious, frilly leaves and takes on the chill of winter with stride! Pretty in the flower garden or on the plate. Rich in nutrition and flavor.

What are the pros? Resists bugs and slow to bolt

What are the cons? None

Review:

One of my favorite kale varieties because it's pest resistant and slow to bolt (still hasn't bolted and it's April in Texas with several days in the high 80s and low 90s behind us). My collards and dino kale were attacked by harlequin bugs but these remained unscathed. Beautiful with curly, purple leaves. I like this better than the more common Red Russian variety. Works great as baby greens in salads or grown to full size. Planted seeds in October in Central Texas (9a) and plants grew quickly. By February, they were the same size as the kale varieties grown from transplants. A good kale for the South.

What are the pros? Color, flavor, hardiness

What are the cons? Did get some kind of bug

Review:

Wow! This was definitely a favorite in my garden this year! Very east to grow, resilient and grew well into our cold fall up here. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this kale flourished in the summer months, especially since I planted later than I had planned. Very forgiving plant! Later in the season I noticed several leaves got some kind of bug under them. I didn't use anything but water and hand picking to remove, but I never figured out what it was. Worth noting, but doesn't worry me for future planting. It also wasn't picked on by the local bunny or the deer who ate my garden back multiple times. I can't say as much for the butter lettuce I planted next to this. Note taken: make a fence this year! Great flavor, perfect for smoothies or cooking. Saved me quite a bit of money throughout the year, too not having to run out for "greens" when I needed some. I will definitely be keeping this seed for my 2018 planting.

What are the pros? Hardy, slow bolt, taste, look

What are the cons? Nothing!

Review:

Beautiful in the garden, extremely tasty and versatile in dishes and salads. Resistant to pests that affected many of my other plants, fast to grow new leaves but slow to bolt. I still have one that didn't go to flower that I planted maybe 6 months ago, though it's slowed it's growth in the fall. I ordered more to experiment with in a tunnel over winter. All things considered, this will be a returning staple of my garden every year. I'll have to plant more than just 5 next year - I could eat a plant a day!

What are the pros? Abundant, tall, gorgeous

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the most beautiful kale ever. Plants are currently about 3ft tall. Ive grown kale before, but nothing like this with such big leaves that stay "crisp" after being picked. Grocery store kale will never see my kitchen again. This kale is a staple in my garden

Review:

After mistaking Red Russian for this variety and being deflated (not at all close!), I found this variety from Baker. What a winner it has been! If you like kale this one is great, with a lovely look in the garden to boot. I can't believe the row is still going strong in Phoenix AZ today on July 15. Shows no signs of stopping. Everything I wanted in a kale crop. Wonderful color and texture. Freeze the excess and crumble it (frozen) into soups for an easy color and nutrition boost. This will be a staple in our garden.
