Champion Collard Greens - Leaves Have a Delicious Cabbage Flavor

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.

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

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.

Champion Collards for the WIN!!

These collards are SO easy to grow!! I purchased these by a packet about a year ago now and I have nothing but excellent things to say!! We generally use soil blocks to start inside and transplant outdoors when appropriate. I also direct seeded into the garden. Both of these methods produced EXCELLENT quality collards!! I just ordered an ounce of seeds and CANNOT wait to get them going in the garden! Thank you for a great product! Highly recommend this product!! Zone 6b

These seeds germinated well and are looking good so far. Survived transplant and looking strong.

Very Quick Germination

After seeing so many postings from the south of fresh, big collards I wanted to try to grow some here in Zone 9b. These seeds germinated very quickly (first visible shoots showed up 9/8, about 6 days after planting) and as of this writing, the plants are about 2 inches tall! Peaceful Valley's 100% germination guarantee, takes the worry out of plantings for me as this whole gardening venture is new to me. I can't wait till harvest...I'm sure I'll be posting beautiful pictures of beautiful collards!

Amazing collards

These collards are no comparison to the ones bought in the grocery store. Picked young, they are tender and smooth rather than tough and chewy. These collards are perfect for salads, soups, wraps and just plain snacking!

Seeds Germinated Fine

Seeds germinated in record time in cool spring soil. I haven't harvested any yet, so can't comment on taste.
