Heirloom. Develops a cabbage-like head with the flavor of both cabbage and collards. Cook just as you would cook spinach. Pick leaves as needed; they taste best when young and small-ribbed. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in spring in hot climates.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
