Georgia Collards

Brassica oleracea  var acephala/viridis

 Georgia Collards are valuable leafy blue-green plants. They are rich in nutrients and flavor. It’s a southern traditional variety with juicy leaves. They are heat and cold tolerant and can grow up to 3 feet... maybe more They are an excellent source of vitamin A, K, B-6 and C. They are also an excellent source of iron and magnesium. They have incredible cholesterol-lowering benefits. You can refrigerate unwashed leaves in a towel or plastic bag.  For freezing, collards can be blanched, or chopped and put directly in the freezer. My favorite way to store them is chopped fine and frozen incased in chicken stock.. Georgia collards can easily be grown in most U.S climates.
