Georgia collards are prized for their sweet, cabbage-like flavor. Leaves are ruffled and blue-green. Leaves taste best when young. Rich in vitamins and minerals. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in spring in hot climates. Withstands cold weather; frost makes leaves sweet. Great for fall.

Georgia Collards is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best to plant in the fall, less problems with bolting. The bugs like to eat them too. Remove the tough stems from the leaves. Cut or strip them out. Avoid overcooking, as many folks do. Use cornbread to sop up the juice. Yum! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this collard. Can't beat taste and easy to grow. I have cut leaves 3 times and it is December, will continue until I pull them in March.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have planted the Georgia blue collards for the last two years in stock watering tanks. They have been wonderful both in taste and yield. Normally plant as a fall crop because of our mild weathers which allows a few days of light freeze. The only problem is finding the transplants in central Texas. Wish the Bonnie vendors in this area would provide more to Lowe's and Home Depot nurseries.
