Description

Collards are a uniquely American vegetable that originated around 1800.  This pre-1880 heirloom variety is suited to the sandy soils common in the Atlantic South and is a favorite in Southern cuisine.  Also known as Creole Collards, Georgia Southern Collards produce large, loose, open heads of succulent, deep blue-green leaves that are sweet, mild, and tender when harvested after frost.

Direct sow seeds 2-4 weeks before last frost date in spring, and 10-12 weeks before first frost in fall in well-drained, fertile soil.  Tolerates heat and mild frost.  Approximately 200 seeds per packet.
