The Collards Georgia Southern, 'Brassica oleracea', is a heat and cold tolerant variety that is high in vitamins and minerals. This non-heading member of the cabbage family has huge cabbage-like, blue-green, slightly crumpled, juicy leaves. Collards are overlooked for gourmet greens, lettuce, and cabbage. Collards grow under more adverse conditions, and are very tasty when cooked or when young leaves are used in salads. Georgia Southerns are easy to grow and they make great container plants.Collards are excellent when served with corn bread and fried green tomatoes. Plant in early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before last frost or in late summer, 10 to 12 weeks before first fall frost. They prefer rich, moist, well drained soil with lots of organic matter. In dry climates, water deeply once a week. The leaves of the collard can be harvested as needed.
Scientific Name : Brassica oleracea
