The Purple Tree Collard is a resilient, nutritious and delicious perennial veggie.

This purple form is a local cultivar chosen for its sweet, tender leaves and pretty color. To grow, situate the plant in a sunny site (preferably in rich soil, but this is not required). Grows from 6-10’ tall and around 3’ wide. The purple color is enhanced by cold weather and the sweetest leaves can be harvested during this time, though this vegetable is productive year-round. Individual plants can live up to 20 years and can be easily propagated by cuttings. USDA Zone 7-10
