Judged most cold-hardy kale in trials at Garden City Seeds (Montana) circa 1995, and voted the best tasting among farm crews there, at High Mowing Seeds in Vermont, and at Gathering Together Farm. Tolerates water saturated soil better than any other kale we grow, lone survivors in two flood years and the annual low spots. Leaves are dissected like Red Russian, but with whitish stems and veining. Vigorous! We introduced this variety in our first catalog, in 1994. Next year, Johnny's will have it in theirs. I expect this to be one of my enduring kales. Farm Original Variety! OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety.
