A delight to all who see it, we first obtained seeds from this diverse variety from the Seed Ambassadors Project. It sounded like a seed saver’s dream, a wide array of Russian kale varieties that plant breeder Tim Peters collected through years of work and allowed to cross pollinate with each other. Our grow out produced more than we expected: Rich purples and greens, shape ranging from ultra-frilly to virtually frill-free and ovular, loads of high shine leaves, most resembling Russian kales, but some that appear to be Brassica rapa, perhaps lending credibility to the theory that Brassica rapa is one of the original parents of the Brassica napus crops.
