What am I?
I'm popular for my color and crunch. I'm usually green, but I can also be light green, red, or purple. I come with lots of frills, too.
Where I grow
I grow on the ground and I love the cold... but not too cold! Pick me before the frost for the best flavor. I've made a comeback in popularity, but I've been around for about 2,000 years tracing back to Europe!
After I'm picked
I like to grow in the spring and again in the fall. My frilly leaves are cut off the stem. I can be eaten raw, boiled, roasted, made into chips, and even blended into a smoothie.
