Morris Heading Collard Greens

55-85 days. An heirloom favorite with a delicious flavor, Morris Heading has broad, waxy, blue-green leaves with light green veins. Producing a loose head somewhat like a Cabbage but with a taller stem, it is considered to be a "heading" type. Very slow to bolt in heat, Morris Heading grow to 24" to 36" tall. Once harvested, keep cool prior to use (they don't like to be stored for very long) and discard any browned, yellowed or damaged leaves and its coarse stems. The mature leaves may also be blanched for use as mild, tender wrappers for savory rice and vegetable fillings. (OP.)

  • Information
  • The cornerstone of traditional Southern cooking and kitchen gardens, these leafy green vegetables include Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Kale and Turnip Greens. Customarily simmered for hours with salt pork or ham hocks, the best way to preserve their wonderful flavors, textures and color is to quickly braise or saute them in olive oil and Garlic. Most Southern Greens prefer cool weather, although Collard Greens are wonderfully tolerant of summer heat. Direct sow Collard, Mustard and Turnip Greens outdoors in the early spring as soon as the soil can be worked and in the late summer for fall harvest.

    Average seed life: 4 years.
