We grow more of this delicious, sweet perennial green than any other!  The Purple Leaf Tree Collard is truly one of the most versatile and delicious perennial foods on the planet.  In our garden, it cranks out delicious greens year-round.  In the summer they are a beautiful, rich green color and when the weather gets cold, the leaves turn a brilliant purple color and sweeten in taste. Why grow just one when you can so easily grow a Purple Leaf Tree Collard forest?  :)  

Why We Love It

Here are some of the reasons why we love the Purple Leaf Tree Collard...

1) SWEET  - The purple color of the leaves is a sign of anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant that gives this perennial veggie its delicious, sweet taste. 

2) PRODUCTIVE- It's hard to top the productivity of this amazing plant.  We've literally planted a mini purple collard forest that we harvest from year-round.  We eat more of this perennial veggie than any other.

3) PEST-RESISTANT - This plant is extremely pest-resistant and fuss-free.  You can plant it with confidence and enjoy greens for decades to come.  

How to Grow It

Here's how to grow Purple Leaf Tree Collards:

SUN FULL SUN
MOISTURE AVERAGE TO LOW WATER
GROWING ZONES USDA 7-10  (Not sure? Find your growing zone here)
SIZE  8 FEET TALL & 3 FEET WIDE IF STAKED, OTHERWISE WILL RAMBLE ALONG THE GROUND
PRO TIP You can choose how you'd like to grow this generous green.  You can either stake them up with a bamboo pole or a t-post, or you can allow them to ramble along the ground.  They are also happy to be pruned, so you can keep them at whatever height works best for your garden.

 

How to Harvest & Use It

The biggest tip we can give you is to harvest them OFTEN!  :)  Harvest the largest, outer leaves.  Only harvest about 1/3 of the total leaves a time.  You can prune them back any time of the year.  The bottom leaves of the plant will always be the darkest purple.
