Champion Collards

Certified Organic Seed

Brassica oleracea

Sweet in the fall but delicious anytime.

Collards are extraordinarily nutritious and make delicious greasy greens, braised in oil with garlic. It's easy to pluck a big bunch and cook them quickly. They accompany nearly any dish well. (Tip: slice leaves across the stem into thin strips before cooking. After cooking, it's easy and fun to twirl cooked tender greens around your fork--like noodles--or to pluck them with chopsticks from a steaming bowl.)

Start collards indoors 6 weeks before planting date. Transplant when plants are 4" high, 18" apart. Harvest larger outer leaves, leaving the smaller inner leaves to grow.

Collards prefer cooler temperatures and thus make a good spring and fall crops. They become extremely sweet after a frost, and last in the garden unprotected beyond December. For a hearty cold season supply, start indoors in early July, transplant in August and let grow until first frost date. In a mild fall, they will continue to grow if harvested regularly.
