This frost-hardy, vigorous heirloom came from Siberia via Russian traders in the late 1800’s. It thrives in all kinds of weather and the red and purple tones of its deeply lobed leaves deepen with the first frost. Sweet and tender, the leaves pack a vitamin and mineral-rich punch.
Direct seed outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked or when soil temperature reaches 40 ℉. Plant 1/4" to 1/2" deep, 2" apart, thin to 18" apart.
young leaves make great salad greens
mark plants with stakes in the fall so you can harvest leaves in the snow; frost improves its flavor
like other members of the broccoli family (brassica), it likes rich soil and plenty of moisture
