500 Seeds

Grow Georgia Southern Collard Greens, from freshly harvested Brassica oleracea seeds. Georgia Southern is a heirloom variety that was first introduced around 1880. The large, green leaves are not only enjoyed steamed, but also used as a low calorie tortilla substitute, believe it or not. The younger leaves are often picked and enjoyed in salads as well. Georgia Southern can withstand light frosts and cooler temperatures, but shouldn't be exposed for too long or the plants can start to bolt. You might be surprised to know that light frosts will make the tender leaves even sweeter.

These crops are categorized as annual vegetables. Annual plants, such as the Georgia Southern Collard will grow quickly, displaying it's large, delicious leaves within a single season. Some plants can be allowed to bolt (go to seed) as the plants mature and temperatures drop. The seeds can then be collected for the following growing season.

Georgia Southern Collard Greens are ready to be harvested in about 60 to 65 days.

Sowing The Seed

Georgia Southern Collard Greens can be started indoors, or directly outdoors as well. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow at a depth of 1/4" under topsoil, lightly covering the seeds. Transplant or direct sow in early spring immediately following the last frost, since Collards will enjoy cooler temperatures. Sowing in early Spring and late Summer to early Autumn is recommended.

Growing Conditions

Collard greens such as this will require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day, with temperatures of at least 45F to 65F. The soil should be fertile and rich in organic matter, but also well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water the soil daily with a light setting until germination has occurred. Water regularly as needed, thereafter.

Germination & Growth

Collards will typically germinate within 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants grow to a mature height of roughly 2 or 3 feet tall, and can spread about 12 to 16 inches wide. The plants are best grown in rows. Space each plant roughly 8 inches apart from one another, spacing each row about 24 inches apart. Georgia Southern Collards will produce large, green leaves that are delicious when added to salads or steamed.

Harvesting Georgia Southern Collard Greens

The plants can be harvested at any given time, whether young or matured. Harvesting your plants when the leaves are less than 8 inches in length isn't recommended. For best flavor, the plants can be cut at the base of their stems, when the leaves are anywhere between 8 to 36 inches long. Consume while fresh or store in the fridge. Be cautious however, since Collard Greens can easily wilt if left in storage for too long.
