What is "Russian Ditto"?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : VictorySeeds.com : One Thread

I work at Sitka National Historical Park, and we have a list of seeds requested by the Russian-American Governor Etolin in 1843 for summer kitchen gardens in the colony of Novo Arkhangel'sk (present-day Sitka, Alaska). Most of the requests are easily translated, but we have one called "Russian Ditto" which I have been unable to find described in any other fashion. Is this red Russian kale or does anyone have an idea what else it might be? Thanks for your help!
