An old-time favorite, 'Morris Heading' is a large collard, though there is some variability in terms of size. The color can vary too, from green to very blue-green. Fast-growing stalks can reach twenty-four to thirty-six inches tall, are slow to bolt, and produce broad, wavy leaves with a mild flavor. Many plants will form loose leafy heads late in growing season. Bred by the Morris Plant Farm of Hasty, North Carolina, 'Morris Heading' was introduced around 1919 and is also known as Carolina Cabbage collards. Very slow-to-bolt.
