Frost only improves the flavor

Days to Maturity: 69

You'll harvest big crops when you grow Tiger, the winter-hardy collard green that regrows quickly when individual leaves are picked. Flavorful, upright, and well filled, it's a great green in the style of the classic Georgia.

Tiger is known for its fast growth, setting whorled heads with a rich flavor improved by frost and severe cold. Pick the leaves as needed throughout the season; this only stimulates new ones to grow and replace them.

Noted for its high blade-to-stalk ratio, Tiger yields big crops. The flavor is gourmet, the harvest generous. You just can't go wrong with this cool-season veggie.

Collards are wonderfully tolerant of both heat and cold; in fact, their flavor is sweetened by a little frost. Sow seeds directly in early spring or in late summer for a fall crop; or start indoors 5 to 7 weeks before setting out. If you want tall plants with full-sized leaves to harvest all at once space the seedlings 15 inches apart. For smaller plants with leaves that can be picked as they arise, space them just 6 to 8 inches apart.
