Yellow Cabbage Collard variety history
From Ed Bullock of Elm City, North Carolina, who has grown this variety for a number of years and also sells seeds and plants to local farm supply stores. In 2005, Ed 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 32751).
This variety is low quantity in the Seed Savers Exchange collection and is in need of regeneration. We are actively looking for more seed stewards willing to regenerate and steward this variety. Please get in touch if you are interested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
