Georgia Blue Collard Greens

Picked from the Garden this Morning……..

Georgia Blue Collards (Brassica oleracea). A great old Southern favorite, pre-1880 heirloom variety that has a good resistance to heat and cold.A Southern favorite, and also performs well up North. Georgia Blue, is a collard green that has tender, blue-green leaves that will withstand light frost. The mild cabbage-like flavor that is tasty and actually improves with a light frost. Plant in spring and again in late summer for a fall to winter harvest. Avoid areas where any of the cabbage family members, like kale, broccoli or cabbage were grown the previous year. The Georgia Blue is a real producer with a huge yield.
