Collard Hi Crop F1
Collards are large dark green loose leaf plants in the same family as cabbage and broccoli, very similar to kale. Highly regarded in Southern American cooking and being the state vegetable of South Carolina, recent studies have shown cooked Collard greens have cholesterol lowering and unique anti colon cancer properties higher than other cruciferous green vegetables. Sow and cook Collards as you would kale from late summer through to spring.
