Collard Greens

collard greens Collard GreensLatin Name: Brassica oleracea

Description: Collard (also known as tree-cabbage or nonheading cabbage), is a cool-season vegetable green that is rich in vitamins and minerals. It grows better in warm weather and can tolerate more cold weather in the late fall than any other member of the cabbage family. Although collard is a popular substitute for cabbage in the Deep South, it can also be grown in northern areas because it is frost tolerant. Hybrid varieties recently have been introduced, bringing hybrid uniformity and vigor to collards.
