A loose-leaf member of the cabbage family that is prolific and easy to grow. The flat, oval, smooth, blue-green leaves have a mild flavor that improves with a light frost. Very high in nutritional value and fiber. Produces through the winter in temperate climates.
Cool season annual
Approx. 740-780 seeds in packet. (A seed will vary in weight and size within a given seed lot. The number of seeds stated is only an estimate.)
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. For spring crops, start plants inside 8 weeks before the last frost, and transplant when they are 6 weeks old. For fall crops, sow seeds 3 months before first frost. When plants reach 12" tall, start harvesting the outer leaves, leaving 3 inner layers to support further growth. Or harvest entire mature plant.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Add to soups or stir-fry. Also useful in pickling and canning. Collards have more fiber than cabbage so require longer cooking.
