Details

Collards are extraordinarily nutritious and make delicious greasy greens, braised in oil with garlic. It's easy to pluck a big bunch and cook them quickly. They accompany nearly any dish well. (Tip: slice leaves across the stem into thin strips before cooking. After cooking, it's easy and fun to twirl cooked tender greens around your fork--like noodles--or to pluck them with chopsticks from a steaming bowl.)

Start collards indoors 6 weeks before planting date. Transplant when plants are 4" high, 18" apart. Harvest larger outer leaves, leaving the smaller inner leaves to grow. Collards prefer cooler temperatures and thus make a good spring and fall crops. They become extremely sweet after a frost, and last in the garden unprotected beyond December. For a hearty cold season supply, start indoors in early July, transplant in August and let grow until first frost date. In a mild fall, they will continue to grow if harvested regularly.
