45 days to maturity. 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 reins supreme. Yellow cabbage collards were first cultivated by Colonel Joe Branner in his Asheville, Carolina, greenhouse in 1887 where he noticed his collard greens were much more tender and less bitter than other collards he had tasted. Over many generations of selection for super tender, buttery greens, this variety is unparalleled in taste and texture.

Seeds for this beloved variety were widely available in the Carolinas until about 1970s when they became much more scarce and only remained in the hands of super dedicated old time southern seed savers. 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.

Review:

I am a gardener in the Pacific Northwest, about zone 8a. I was initially given an "overpacked" package of seeds due to a predicted low germination rate from Baker Creek, but I got a high germination from these puppies AND they're huge. I planted them a little too close to some corn which is stunted from lack of sun as a result, but I give these collards a big thumbs up.

Review:

I started this in the ground from transplants in November. I harvested the bottom leaves and they just kept growing taller and larger. They are super tender and I use them raw in salads and cooked. At this time in southwest Florida (June) they are still going strong. This is an amazing plant and deserves a place on every farm. I have some plants that lasted all summer from fall of 2016 planting. I have cut them completely off and they grew back again with small tender leaves. I can't say enough about this wonderful plant. I will always have it in my market garden.

Review:

I order these from the Carolina's. I live in zone 9A (florida) the greens are doing well right now (growing strong and tall), they seem to grow slower than regular collards, but this is my 1st time growing them. As of 01/01/18 the weather is about 45 degrees here for the next week, then it will be back to 75 and 80 (that's florida for you).... Wish me well!!. Ps: I only ordered one small pack. "Thinking" I should have ordered more, as they are hard to keep in stock.
