Description

The ideal cool-weather annual

Days to Maturity: 65 from direct sow

Visitors to our trial gardens always gasp in amazement at pretty, bright red Redbor Hybrid. It looks so uniform and erect that it's perfect for garden design, and it's also so delicious you've got to grow a few in the vegetable garden, too.

Redbor's finely-curled, deep red leaves are sweet and tender. This plant grows well in spring as well as in fall, though unseasonably warm weather may prevent the best red color from emerging. In the annual flower bed it's the ideal companion to snapdragons, pansies, and more.

Kale is a cool-weather crop, and the drop in temperature triggers Redbor's young green leaves to turn red, so plant in earliest spring and fall for best results.
