A rare gem, these scarce seeds are highly
coveted and have been passed down for many generations
in the Carolinas, where this tender collard
green reigns supreme. Yellow Cabbage collards were
first cultivated by Colonel Joe Branner in his Asheville,
North Carolina, greenhouse in 1887 where he
noticed his collard greens were much more tender
and less bitter than other collards he had tasted.
With thinner leaves and a more mellow flavor, this
non-heading variety is more reminiscent of spinach
but with the impressive heat and humidity tolerance
of collard greens. Grows to about 2 feet tall and wide,
and matures in about 45 days.
