Availability: In Stock
A staple in the South, collards are a nutritious and versatile vegetable that grows in hot or cold regions with ease. 'Georgia Southern' has been enjoyed since the 1800s. The large leaves not only make delicious steamed greens, they also make fantastic wraps (a low-calorie substitute for tortillas), and when young, hearty salad greens. Fall frosts make them sweeter, and they may overwinter, as they can survive temperatures down to 20°F. Excellent container variety.

This was our first time growing collards. We had a huge success! Growing them ourselves, we had the option to pick them early or wait till they were full grown. So delicious! I quickly saute them & they are ready to eat! Definitely a keeper for our garden!

I planted this variety of collards back in spring and quickly had a bountiful harvest. I expected that perhaps as summer came perhaps it would scale back some. I could not have been more wrong! It continued to grow like a machine ALL summer and now in October is STILL producing! I have collards galore!! It was so easy to sow and grow. I had some flea beetle issues in the spring/early summer and this plant survived it like a pro with no issue. The flea beetles lost, and the collards and myself won! I have given many leaves to family and friends and they comment how incredibly tasty and tender the leaves are at any size. Everyone loves eating this variety!
