Delicious and Nutritious Purple Tree Collard Cuttings
Purple Tree Collards are a hardy perennial plant in the brassica family, like kale and broccoli.
They can grow for many years and are vigorous and easy to grow. The plants produce an abundance of tasty leaves that can be steamed, stir fried or in soup, eaten raw in salads, made into wraps or chips, or blended for your green drink. Had enough Kale for a while? Try tree collards.
What is the most delicious and nutritious green vegetable that you may have never seen or heard of? PURPLE TREE COLLARDS. And why haven’t you heard of them? Because they very rarely flower, and when they do, the seeds that they produce will not usually produce a plant that is like the parent. So how do you get some plants? Plants are not readily available, so to grow your own you need to start from cuttings of existing plants. The easiest way is to order them from Sundial Seed Company.
