A dazzlingly visual improvement on the traditional Red Russian-type kale. Bright pinkish-purple veins look like bolts of lightning extending out into the leaves’ deep green-blue lobes. Incredibly early, vigorous and tender kale, growing frillier after a few pickings. Another stand-out variety from the mind of plant breeder Frank Morton at Wild Garden Seeds.
