Collards Champion (Brassica oleracea var acephala) is an heirloom variety that has been around for centuries, and it’s still popular today because of its flavor and nutritional value. This nutrient-rich vegetable contains vitamins A, C, K, and folate as well as calcium and iron. It’s also low in fat and calories but high in dietary fiber, making it an ideal food for weight loss or maintenance.
When selecting a location for your Collards Champion plants, look for an area that gets full sun (at least 6 hours per day). They prefer a slightly acidic soil pH of 6.0-6.5 and will thrive in fertile loam or sandy loam soils with good drainage. Planting depth should be 1/4 inch deep, and spacing should be 8-12 inches apart in rows 18-24 inches apart. If you live in a warmer climate, consider planting your collards in partial shade to protect them from intense summer heat.
Collards Champion is one of the hardiest varieties of collard greens and can tolerate temperatures down to 15°F (-9°C). It can also withstand prolonged periods of drought or cooler temperatures if given adequate water during dry spells or cold snaps. To ensure optimal growth, keep your plants well watered throughout the growing season (about 1 inch per week) and fertilize lightly every two weeks after planting with an all-purpose fertilizer or compost tea solution.
Harvest your Collards Champion plants when the leaves are 6-8 inches long by cutting them off at the base of the plant. To ensure a continuous harvest throughout the season, replant every few weeks with fresh seeds or transplants from other established plants. Your Collards Champion plants will be ready to harvest again within 45 days after planting!
