Scarlet Kale Plants produce colorful, tasty leaves that are loaded with flavor and nutrition, and are great for bunching. Plants are mostly green during the summer but once October arrives, it transforms into shades of purple, pink, and magenta. Because of their colorful nature, some people are known to use this plant as an ornamental bedding plant. Leaves are best when harvested young for fresh eating but should be mature for gourmet cooking.
We grow our Scarlet Kale plants organically and guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving.
