Tree Collard Cuttings
AVAILABLE WEEKLY: We have had such a great response to these that we are limiting orders each week to make sure the rate of harvest is sustainable. New inventory is put online every Monday, and when it is gone, ordering is closed until the next Monday. If these show as "sold out," just check back on the next Monday.
A delicious perennial vegetable, more tender than regular kale or collards. Extremely productive. The plant has purple stems and blue-green leaves that turn a beautiful purple in cool weather. It will take some frost, but usually doesn't survive if the ground freezes. Hardy in zones 8-10. Hardy with protection in zone 7. Makes a long stalk with purple-green leaves on top. The leaves turn deep purple in winter, and become very sweet during winter and early spring. This treasure has been passed from gardener to gardener by cuttings for at least 200 years. Here's a video about them, made by the man who grows the tree collards we sell.
We supply 3 cuttings, ready for you to root at home. They are cut from the plant to order. Each week's orders are collected and cut on Monday morning, so they get through the postal system early in the week. When you receive them, plant them in a pot right away. Instructions are included.
