Kale Red Winder

Kale Red Winder - Seeds & Bulbs

Red Winter

Most kale gets sweeter as the first frost hits. Red Winder, and improved Red Russian Kale, is sweet all the time and is also very tender. This makes it excellent for your mesclun salad mix, tasty garnishes, and lightly cooked dishes. The red veins, wavy margins, and foliage that resembles oak leaves, makes Red Winder almost dramatic looking in the garden.
