Vates is one of the most productive collards available. The dark green leaves of this collard variety are extremely tasty. Vates reaches a height of 30" and takes a long time to bolt.With non-heading and slow-bolting plants, these collards have a uniform, compact growth habit. Because of their mild cabbage taste, these greens are excellent for boiling, canning, and freezing. The big blue-green leaves are frost-resistant and ready in 75 days.
