Purple Tree Collards are a perennial vegetable related to collard greens. They can get over eight feet in height and will continue to grow and produce year after year. Purple Tree Collards can survive temperatures down to around 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Many people find that the flavor of Purple Tree Collards is superior to traditional collard greens and they also tend to be more disease and pest resistant. They are very productive because they grow year round. In addition to humans, chickens and ducks love to eat tree collards and their egg yolks will turn a brilliant orange.
Like other collard greens, Purple Tree Collards are very nutritious. They are high in Vitamins B1, B2, B9, C, and beta-Carotene and are also a great source of fiber. The greens are delicious with a nutty flavor.
Purple Tree Collard plants are best for gardeners who want to skip having to root their own cuttings (which can take a month or longer). You may wish to pot your baby plant up in a one gallon container for a week or two upon arrival, but it can be transplanted directly into a garden bed as well. Basic instructions for growing it are included. Please check out our growing guide for more information and videos. While we hope your plants thrive, we cannot guarantee the success of your plants in your garden.
