Product description

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - Alabama heirloom, original seedstock from Jean Mills. Introduced 2015 by SESE. Landrace with wide variation in beautiful leaf colors. Green, blue-green, and purple leaves with white, pale green, and plum-colored veins. Smaller leaves than most collards; plants can be more closely spaced. The leaves are more tender and faster to cook, and the plants hold their sweetness longer in hot weather. Blue-leaved collards have become rare, we hope to get more folks growing these again!

  • Certified Organic 
  • Heirloom 
  • Especially well-suited to the Southeast 
  • From Small Farms 
  • High in iron and in vitamins A and C 

    Instructions - Grow best on a rich, moist, well-drained loam of high fertility. Needs a steady supply of water and full sun throughout the growing season. A thick layer of organic mulch will conserve moisture and reduce the tendency to bolt in hot weather. Tendency to bolt is affected more by root temperature than air temperature. Clip individual leaves before they are 12 in. long. 

    • Heat-tolerant 
    • Winter-hardy from Virginia southward
