|Scarlet frills: red, curly leaves, from the brassica family, |
has a mustard-y flavor that can be a bit spicy when weather is warm.
Red russian kale: Also a brassica, known for being cold weather hardy,
usually grown for mature leaves (not baby size for salads).
What do you think? Are there other varieties you think should be on the list? Leave me a comment (via facebook or the little pencil on the actual post) or send an email. I can see how many people view the post so I know when you're not replying! It's for science!
(I will be doing a variety trial of 20 greens once in the fall and once in the spring to look at lesser known varieties like vitamin green and tatsai.)
