Miss Annie Pearl Counselman 132863

TBD. Scheduled for a 2017 evaluation growout at Seed Savers Exchange.

History: Donated to Seed Savers Exchange in 2015 by Tom Lambard of Alabama. Tom began stewarding this variety in 2012 after receiving it from Miss Annie Pearl Counselman, then a 94-year old gardener in Clarke County, AL. Miss Annie Pearl received the variety sometime in the 1950s while she and her husband were living in New Prospect, AL. At that time, their Baptist church had recently gotten a new preacher – Brother Tyson. The preacher’s wife came to visit and brought some collard seeds to share. Miss Annie Pearl has been growing and saving them ever since.
