Well-known and sought after by home cooks and chefs, Red Russian is a staple of market stand, CSA, and wholesale offerings. Its broad, flat green leaves are defined by rosy red veins and have gently serrated edges. Cut Red Russian at baby size for baby mesclun mix, or harvest mature bunches. Pair with White Russian for similar leaf shape and attractive stem color contrast.
