23-30 days to baby leaf 68-75 to full leaf Brassica oleracea

“Oh and try this, we like it so much better than kale!’ exclaimed our friend Roxanne in the middle of winter, reaching for a leaf. The darling serrations decorating each emerald leaf were immediately endearing and from the first nibble of stem we absolutely agreed. So much more tender and sweet than kale in both summer heat and winter chill, Hen Peck collards are equally easy to grow and impressively cold-hardy here in zone 5, not to mention prolific! Collards can be sown as early as your first peas and as late as your final radishes, just a few weeks before frost, surrounding you with impressive abundance well into the New Year and beyond with just a touch of season extension.
