The Babaco fruit is torpedo shaped with five deep longitudinal furrows that resemble the shape of a star. The fruit's skin is smooth and thin and when fully rip will turn golden yellow in color.
Resembling a Chinese lantern, the gooseberry is wrapped in a thin, papery, inflated skin. These very tart, piquant fruits turn from a pale green to an amber or gold color as they ripen and offer a flavor similar to a gooseberry or a tart green grape.

Redbor kale is available in the late winter and early spring.
Though Redbor grows well in spring and fall, as Kale is a cool-weather crop, when planted in winter, the temperature triggers Redbor's young green leaves to turn red.
Redbor kale can be distinguished from other kale varieties simply by its deep red and maroon color. The Redbor kale has frilly, curled leaves that have deep purple stems and veins running throughout the leaf. Growing between 18 to 24 inches in length, the Redbor kale offers a mild green flavor and crisp texture.
Redbor kale is great for blanching or quickly pan-cooked in olive oil. Long simmering, however brings out an entirely different dimension in its flavor profile. The kale collapses in the pan and then swells as it cooks. This method will create a nourishing sweet "pot liquor" that will yield the need for bread to sop up its every juice. The kale will lose its bright attractive colors but the end result is comforting and delicious.
