COLLARD, William Alexander
William Alexander Heading Collards Brassica oleracea
Germination: 92% Oct 2023
Packed for 2024
The wavy leaves of this variety of collards forms a slight heading characteristic with colors that range from dark green to yellow green. We love its mustardy yet slightly sweet flavor. According to our friends from the Heirloom Collards Project, “This heirloom variety is from William Alexander of Columbia, North Carolina. Mr. Alexander is an African-American farmer who has saved seed all his life, since about 1940. He can’t recall where he first got the collard seed, though it was probably from his father.” Our seeds were grown out by Diane Fisher, a UCFA grower in Maryland.
