Tiger Hybrid Collards Seeds
Frost Only Improves the Flavor!
Tiger is known for its fast growth, setting whorled heads with a rich flavor improved by frost and severe cold. Pick the leaves as needed throughout the season; this only stimulates new ones to grow and replace them!
Noted for its high blade-to-stalk ratio, Tiger yields big crops. The flavor is gourmet, the harvest generous. You just can't go wrong with this cool-season veggie!
Collards are wonderfully tolerant of both heat and cold; in fact, their flavor is sweetened by a little frost. Sow seeds directly in early spring or in late summer for a fall crop; or start indoors 5 to 7 weeks before setting out. If you want tall plants with full-sized leaves to harvest all at once space the seedlings 15 inches apart. For smaller plants with leaves that can be picked as they arise, space them just 6 to 8 inches apart. Pkt is 200 seeds.
