Collards are a versatile vegetable that grows in both hot and cold regions. Fall frosts will make them sweeter, and since they can survive temperatures down to 20°F they may overwinter. Botanical Interests’® Georgia Southern Heirloom Collards Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.

What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
