Collard Greens - Champion - Brassica oleracea var. acephala

Biennial Heirloom. Collards tolerate more heat and frost than any other member of the cabbage family. Champion collards are a trusty, widely adapted variety. The dark green leaves a have a delicious cabbage flavor. This is a great variety for over-wintering and holds up to two weeks longer than many other collards. The leaves have a waxy coating that is a natural protection from cabbage worms.

Soil and Water: Provide ample, even water. These greens prefer deeply worked soil rich in organic matter. They need adequate nitrogen to develop the darkest leaf color.

Planting and Growing: Direct sow four weeks before the last frost. Plant in rows three feet apart. Plant 8-10 weeks before the first frost for fall crops.

Harvesting and Storage: Thin seedlings to six inches apart and use the thinnings as micro-greens. Harvest whole plants when they begin to touch to increase spacing to 18 inches. Pick off outer leaves on the plants left when they reach 10-12 inches tall.

Did You Know? The name collards is a corruption of the Anglo-Saxon word "coleworts" which means "cabbage plants".
