Attributes Mass Plant
A heirloom variety traditionally grown in the South (Old-Timers favorite) for many years. Plants reach 24 – 36 inches tall, producing abundantly, and the greens are unsurpassed for fresh collard taste. Blue-green leaves with a light green vein. Cabbage like flavor when boiled or steamed. Terrific in salads. Tolerant of both heat and cold – great fall plant – their flavor is sweetened by a little frost. Transplant in late summer for a great fall crop – maturity 80 days from transplant.
Avoid areas where any of the cabbage family members were grown the previous year.
