Georgia Southern is a heirloom variety that was first introduced around 1880. The large, green leaves are not only enjoyed steamed, but also used as a low calorie tortilla substitute, believe it or not. The younger leaves are often picked and enjoyed in salads as well. Georgia Southern can withstand light frosts and cooler temperatures, but shouldn't be exposed for too long or the plants can start to bolt. You might be surprised to know that light frosts will make the tender leaves even sweeter.
These crops are categorized as annual vegetables. Annual plants, such as the Georgia Southern Collard will grow quickly, displaying it's large, delicious leaves within a single season. Some plants can be allowed to bolt (go to seed) as the plants mature and temperatures drop. The seeds can then be collected for the following growing season.
