Collard greens, a staple in southern cooking, is in the cabbage family with broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Every part of the plant can be eaten. Like its close relatives it is a cool weather crop and varieties such as Vates is frost and bolt resistant. For spring crop plant inside 8 weeks before last frost date and transplant when six weeks old. Collards are tolerant of many types of soil, but grows best in a soil amended with compost. Plants can have a 2-3 foot spread so give them plenty of space. Be sure to keep plants well watered in the heat of the summer as drier plants have a more bitter taste. They can be harvested leaf by leaf or cut to the ground to use the entire plant. Because most diseases that plague collards are soil borne diseases plant cole crops (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussel sprouts) in any given area once every three years. That will significantly reduce the occurrence of soil borne disease. Collards are susceptible to insects such as aphids and cabbage loopers. Check plants regularly as early detection is key to control.
