Massive, tender, and ruffly leaves on juicy green stems. True Siberian Kale is our most vigorous by far and a favorite of farmer friends in the Puget Sound AND Midwest! Great year round, but exceptional over-wintered for its impressive early-season leaf and raab production. Apparently flood tolerant, as we produced a hearty seed crop from plants that sat in standing water all winter long. Props to Adaptive Seeds for introducing us to this gem.
