Kale, Russian Hunger Gap
B. napus. Red Russian type with broader leaves, lighter red coloring and more jagged leaf edge. The most vigorous of 6 napus kales we grew in 2010. Looked very healthy all winter. As the name suggests, bolting in the spring is many weeks later than other kales, filling the hunger gap of May with excellent kale raab. Very hardy and extremely rare. This kale is praised by Carol Deppe in her book, The Resilient Gardener. From Heritage Seed Library, England.
