DESCRIPTION

This open-pollinated variety produces, big waxy leaves that vary from green to blue-green. They have a mild cabbage-like flavor that will be in peak condition in cool weather. In mild climates collards will continue to grow all winter without disruption and can be harvested continually for months. Harvest young, tender leaves for best flavor.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.

ANNUAL

Annual plants are plants with a life cycle that lasts only one year. They grow from seed, bloom, produce seeds, and die in one growing season. They then need to be replanted each spring.
