PAUL LOVES KALE! There is no question about that. In fact, Paul plants several varieties of kale in his garden. When we asked him, "What is your favorite vegetable or fruit to grow and eat?" there was no hesitation before he answered "Red Russian Kale." Therefore, this is our first recommended seed of the month!
If you have been on one of Paul's garden tours, you know that Paul recommends to eat a piece of kale from the stem upwards towards the leaf. Traditionally, people discard the stem of kale. Paul does not. Why? When you grow your own kale in a Back to Eden garden, it tastes sweet, is full of water, is super tender, and is full of nutrients!
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory. Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and reasonably rich in calcium. If you are looking for a new heirloom, non-gmo, variety of kale to plant in your garden, we recommend growing Red Russian Kale. It is a hearty variety that is an excellent producer in cooler growing seasons.
