Yellow variety history

From Brice Elvington of Fair Bluff, North Carolina, who received this collard from his father-in-law, Wilbur Cole, a life-long gardener and seed saver. In 2006, Brice gave seeds to Dr. John Morgan, a cultural geographer and professor of geography at Emory & Henry College, who was collecting heirloom collard strains for preservation on behalf of the USDA Accession. Seed Savers Exchange requested this variety in 2016 from the USDA Accession collection (G 32763).
