(B. oleracea) A great old southern favorite, pre-1880 heirloom that has a good resistance to heat and cold. Great for the South, but also good up North. A real producer with a huge yield that is very tasty and flavorful.

What are the pros? Hugely prolific

What are the cons? Cabbage moth favorite

Review:

Widely varied results depending on soil setup, but the ones that grew REALLY grew! These collards rival my tree collards in height, and I harvest from them way more. Leaves over a 18 inches long in my good soil beds. Critters seem to like yanking up these seedlings more than other plants. Young ones also seem very prone to cabbage moth caterpillars, but once they got beyond the young stage, they were great. Plenty to share and you can never even tell the harvest made a dent.

Review:

I live in Oklahoma City and am a beginner gardener. I planted these seeds in the garden in September, they grew fast. When the winter came I was not able to protect them as I had read that I should because of shoulder surgery. I thought all was lost on the winter garden but they froze, & then grew back - over and over and over. They were still growing when I put the summer garden in. Amazing!

What are the pros? Great perfomer

What are the cons? no dislikes

Review:

I plant these collards nearly year-round here in San Diego, CA. I have found that they do not bolt in our Summers and provide tons of leaves all Winter. They seem to like the cold a bit more than the 80s temps of the Summer but overall while worth working into the garden. Older leaves can be a bit tough so be sure to harvest young and frequently.

Review:

The biggest challenge you will be presented with by these collards is keeping up with them. They get HUGE! I have harvested leaves off of them that were three and a half feet long. One plant will give you an armload of greens about every week or two. Three plants kept two vegetarians and three backyard chickens full of delicious greens for the better part of last winter. Because the don't lose very much volume when they cook, they are easy to make a meal out of. We braise them, add garlic, red pepper flakes, some peanut oil and a handful of peanuts, and they are absolutely delicious.
