Collards, Morris Heading


Collards are easy, fast-growing annuals and are members of the cabbage family. Collards do not form heads, are grown for their nutritious leaves, and can tolerate heat and cold. High yielding and perfect for families due to its cut-and-come-again harvesting over a long growth period.

This fast-growing collard variety is one of our favorite greens to grow! It has large blue-green leaves with a mild and delicate flavor. It makes loose, slow-bolting heavy heads on short stems and is very tolerant to heat and cold. Its taste is similar to cabbage and contains numerous important nutrients.

Days to Maturity: 50-60 days

Plant size: 12-24” tall and wide

Plant spacing: 10-15” apart for small leaf harvest, and 15-18” apart for full-grown harvest

Sun, soil, and water requirement: Prefers full to partial sun with rich, well-draining soil. Add organic compost as needed and keep moist and weed-free. Collards do best with an even supply of 1 to 1.5 inches of water weekly.

Harvesting: Harvest leaves when they are up to 10 inches long and dark green, picking the lower leaves first, working your way up the plant. Cut what you need and come again when you need more. This is our preferred way to harvest greens throughout the growing season.

Culinary: Collards are very versatile and are a popular use for salad wraps, soups, stir-fries, collard greens and so much more.

Nutrients: Collards are very nutritious; low in calories and high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Companion planting: Plant near hyssop, thyme, mints, chamomile, garlic, dill, sage, basil, bean, cucumber, lettuce, marigold, nasturtiums, radish, and rosemary. Keep away from grapes, rue, and tansy. Aromatic herbs help repel pests.
