A cabbage-type collard with a unique sweet flavor. Originally selected for making juice, this hybrid maintains a particularly sweet flavor, especially when cooler conditions up the Brix to 17%. Broad leaves and thick stems contain very little fiber and can produce a lot of juice! Versatile leaves can also be used for cooking and the tasty flowering shoots can be consumed after light boiling. Dwarf habit. 60 days. Photo courtesy of Pro-Veg.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop.
