Curly kale receives a lot of attention as a superfood. ‘Redbor F1’ is a highly productive variety with upright, curled leaves with strong stems that are easy to harvest. Suitable for autumn and winter cultivation. The plants grow to 70-90 cm high and the leaves have the most wonderful, intense, deep red colour of all red curly kale varieties.

To ensure good growth, follow up feeding with an organic fertiliser several times during the crop cycle may help the plants.
