Mix of Russian and Siberian kales in shades of green and red.
The flavor of this kale similar to other Russian kales, a bit sharper than Dino Kale or Vates Blue Curled Kale. Plant this variety if you enjoy the flavor of Asian greens, but long for something more substantial and longer lasting in the garden. Makes a great baby leaf for salads. Kale is a biennial; grow the plants in year one, overwinter the ones you like, and save the seeds in the second year.
Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
Artwork by Marcie Ann Long. This exuberant work, an acrylic painting on canvas, sets this kale mix in the celestial realm right where it belongs! Marcie Ann is a self-taught painter. She uses bright colors and biologically correct details to bring out the energy in her subjects.
