These plants have wide, smooth, blue-green leaves. The lower leaves hang down with age and the upper or crown leaves are usually cupped. Collards are similar to it's relative, Kale, but taste slightly different and seem to be preferred across the South.
Collards and kale differ from one another by the leaf shape; the former have
smooth leaf margins, while the latter's are generally crinkled. Collard greens
are a popular vegetable in the southern U.S.
Collards and kales are considered more primitive forms of the other Cole crops, namely, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Kohlrabi.
The name "acephala" means "without a head", although collards and kale will produce a seed head during the second growing season, being biennials.
The Plants Described Above are all Good for the Remedies below but Kale is the preferred plant.
