Where art and horticulture meet.
Seeds: Innovative plant breeder Tim Peters developed this mix, originally called Gulag Stars, by blending Brassica napus kale varieties (Russian kales) with shinier Brassica rapa varieties (mustards and Asian Greens) using a method known as bud pollinating. The flavor of this kale similar to other Russian kales, a bit sharper than Dino Kale or Vates Blue Curled Kale. Plant this variety if you enjoy the flavor of Asian greens, but long for something more substantial and longer lasting in the garden. Makes a great baby leaf for salads.
Specific: Brassica napus.
Artist and self-taught painter, Marcie Ann Long, created this exuberant work, an acrylic painting on canvas, thus setting this kale mix in the celestial realm right where it belongs!
