    Appearance and Taste

    Red Russian kale stands out due to its vibrant, frilly green leaves and purple-red stems. Its leaves are flatter and more tender than other kale varieties. The taste is mild, slightly sweet, and less bitter than some other kales.

    Like all kales, Red Russian kale is packed with nutrients:

    Vitamins: Rich in vitamins A, C, and K.

    Minerals: Contains calcium, iron, and potassium.
