How to Harvest Baby Red Russian Kale
Harvest Baby Red Russian Kale with the right technique, and it will grow back for an endless supply of greens! Check out our tips below on how to harvest your homegrown kale.
HOW TO HARVEST Baby Red Russian Kale:
- After about three weeks of growth, or when the plants reach at least 6" tall, identify the largest, outer (baby) leaves.
- Work around the plants to pinch off these large leaves, taking about a quarter to a third of the total plant material. This will allow new growth to develop from the center for continuous harvests!
- To harvest mature Red Russian Kale leaves, wait for the plant to grow about 10"-12" tall, and harvest the large leaves with the same technique described above.
