Brassica oleracea (Acephala) 'Georgia'
When to Sow:
Ease of Germination:
Collard greens are a classic African American staple throughout the southeastern United States. Leaves are chopped into one inch pieces and simmered in water with smoked or salted meats such as ham hocks, pork or turkey necks, together with sauteed onions, garlic, Serrano chile pepper, vinegar and salt. Traditionally served on New Years Day with black-eyed peas and cornbread. Closely related to kale though it has a stronger flavour. It goes back at least 2000 years to the ancient Greeks and Romans, and was likely brought to America from Africa by the slaves. Easily adapted to most gardens with rich soil and full sun. 75 days.
