Georgia Southern Collards
A time-tested variety with excellent flavor.
It’s easy to see why this old 1800s heirloom has been around for so long. A smaller and sturdier variety compared to other collards we've tried, the plant is both vigorous and productive, making it an an excellent choice for small spaces. The tender, blue-green leaves hold up well when when sautéed or stewed. Heat and frost tolerant and slow to bolt.

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.
