Yellow Cabbage Collard variety history
From Bud Dew of Tarboro, North Carolina. This variety came to Bud through his father, Tim Dew, who grew and saved seeds of it all his life. In 2005, Bud 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 32750).
D-pack means that the seeds are available through the Seed Savers Exchange. Regeneration project are underway with some varieties to build up enough sharable seed stock. We are actively looking for more seed stewards willing to regenerate and steward these varieties. Please get in touch if you are interested.
