Description: 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.” Almost like astral projection, this allows two related but separate species to be swirled together. The result is this delightful mix, a blend of kales with shapes, colors, textures, and sizes that vary from plant to plant like colorful star-forming nebulae

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.
