REDBOR KALE OVERVIEW

Prized for both form and function, this curly, ruby-hued kale provides tons of nutrition and adds interest to any plate. It’s short in stature, but produces leaves quickly and abundantly, and offers all the health benefits that come with that dark purple color.

GROWING AND HARVESTING TIPS

Smaller in stature than other kales, this deep purple variety can be harvested as the leaves grow. Harvest when most leaves are 3-5" for tender baby leaves, at 6-8" for medium leaves that can stand up to gentle heat, or at 8-10" for large leaves sturdy enough for stir frying and sauteing.
