Red Winter is an improved version of Red Russian Kale. This rare strain of kale has VERY tender, sweet leaves compared to other kales. The reddish-purple stems and veins, wavy margins, and foliage that resembles oak leaves makes Red Winter almost dramatic-looking in the garden! Young leaves are very attractive in salads and mesclun mixes. It makes a nice garnish and can be used in any dish that calls for kale.
