Q: what's different about russian kale? (v. tuscan or curly)
Planted Tuscan, also known as Dino or Lacinato, kale in my garden this year and also planted Russian Kale for the first time. Tuscan has remained my favorite to cook with and to make kale chips. The Russian Kale is supposedly more tender and delicate but I find the taste to be a little more on the bitter side. I never use curly kale because in my experience it is too tough.
