More Details

We should all grow Kale 'Redbor'. It's delicious shallow-fried, makes the best Chinese seaweed and looks fantastic right the way through the year, fitting well into an ornamental border.

Try 'Redbor' raw, finely chopped in an autumn salad with slithers of raw pumpkin, marinated in lemon juice and dressed with Parmesan and olive oil – fantastic. Kale is a fantastic winter 'superfood'.

This also looks great in cut flower arrangements as stunning red foliage – pictured here with our Abundant Chrysanthemum Collection.
