What are the pros? Sweet, Tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

Last fall I bought Collards in the store as we had never tried them before but we hated them. I hypothesized they tasted better from the garden and purchased these seeds after some extensive research to choose the variety. Not surprisingly, these are so tasty! I've been munching on the leaves straight from the garden!! We've had a cold winter and spring this year with lots of snow and I didn't get these into the ground until April. Even then, my garden didn't do much until this last month. Now the garden is going crazy and I'm about to have more Collards than I know what to do with! I'll be attempting to overwinter a new crop this fall.

What are the pros? Beautiful prolific plants

What are the cons? The cabbage loopers like them

Review:

These beautiful plants grow like crazy, getting a spread of 1 ft. and about 10 inches tall. Although cabbage loopers sometimes attack, BT will kill them. These plants grew through a 105 degree summer and down to 12 degrees in winter. Although they sometimes wilt in super hot weather, they are drought resistant.

What are the pros? Good germination, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is my second year growing this variety, but my first year growing them from seed. It was very easy to get these germinated and out into the garden. These are very cold hardy. The temperatures have fluctuated wildly from 70s down to 20s, and these plants are still doing very well. Very prolific, sweet greens.

What are the pros? Perfect cole for midatlantic

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Absolutely perfect cole; very large leaves of high grade, salad quality fresh and raw. Overwintered easily in zone 7 and provided constant fresh organic greens of substantial size and fantastic taste and nutrition all winter long. you can harvest in the snow, since the plants are also about two feet tall. I grew most of baker's coles this past year and this is one of the absolute best. as a biennial, they will more or less last for one and a half years until flowering and seeding. very good duration; never cut the plant at the base to harvest; stupid and unnecessary and inefficient. If I could only grow 5 seed crops this would be one...no brainer!

What are the pros? Easy, Huge, Delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

We always have grown these Georgia Collards and they come right up, thick, so either plant a couple extra rows for sharing or pick all outside leaves first to keep from crowding. They get a good foot or more tall with thick bluish silver green leaves. If we let big leaves get by us, we just pull out center stalk at the bottom and go right on. No bitterness, very smooth taste even big leaves. We just pick any worms that appear off, they hide on the back, but like someone else said they don't bother them enough to mention. And we've grown these in Pensacola, Fl, Birmingham, Al and Hayden, Al, same results, no matter what soil or weather they grow all the way until hard frost. The best part though is cooking the mess of collard greens in just enough water to cover them with a bit of bacon or ham and slow simmer till wilty and tender then serving in a big bowl of their own juice and dipping cornbread/corn pones in-mmm mmm! That is a meal we could eat every day:)! This is a must have:)!
