What are the pros? GA Collards beat out others

What are the cons? Harlequin bugs love the leaves

Review:

I planted these seeds directly in the ground 7/29/2017. I grew them along side Morris Heading and Yates. I have not seen either of those (2) germinate. Very soon I could see that GA Collards were the winner. I planted some out int the open and cabbage butterflies have skeletonized them and stunted their growth. I put a row cover of Agribon over some about a month after their growth and in spite of the cabbage worms and harlequin bugs they are doing well. Thankfully I used one at a distance for a trap crop. I picked the harlequin bugs off and drowned them in soapy water DAILY which was a real occupation. Now I don't have many harlequins and baby harlequins left! At first I thought the harlequin was a beneficial until I watched how it sucked the life out of my turnip leaves, Tithonia leaves, and later trap crop collard leaves. The trap collard WAS covered with harlequins and their families. I keep a soapy plastic salad container of soapy water under the collard and drown them.

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!
