Said to have been introduced into Canada by Russian traders in 1885 or possibly earlier. It was listed in The Vegetable Garden by Vilmorin in 1885 under the name Ragged Jack Kale. The beautiful plants have bluish green leaves with purplish veins and cooler weather brings out a purplish tint to the leaves. Delicious and cold hardy.
To grow: Sow in full sun in early spring and in midsummer for fall crop. Plant seeds evenly and thinly and cover with ¼” of soil.
