This perennial brassica is excellent for a continual supply of greens, sweeter and Tastier than regular collards. The leaves turn purple in cold weather. High in calcium any excess leaves can be fed to your chickens. The trunk and branches get woody after three years so it is a good idea to take cutting after 18 months - 2 years while the top branches are still tender.
