OSSI variety [Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed] Lacinato's treasured taste, plus many shades of red and purple in the stems and leaves. As with other red-tinted greens, color is most vivid in cool weather. Created by crossing classic Lacinato with Redbor hybrid kale; this variety is now also extra-cold-hardy because the 2014 seed crop went through a -6°F freeze, and seed was saved from the plants that survived! Pkt (1.5 g, ~450 seeds).

This is an Open Source Seed Initiative variety. The OSSI pledge: "You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others’ use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives."
