Flash Collard is a hybrid collard variety that is the slowest-to-bolt of any variety we offer. This is a heavy-yielding variety that will produce continuous harvests throughout the cooler months and well into the warmer months. Flash Collard is a vates-type collard that produces upright plants for repeated harvests. The leaves are dark green and smooth with an excellent flavor. It can also be grown as a baby collard variety with dense plantings and early, cut-and-come again harvests.

Collards are heat-tolerant and will grow well into the spring and early summer months. They are also extremely cold-tolerant. Plant in fall and harvest collards continually throughout the winter and spring months. Stalks will continue to grow upward after each harvest. This is one of the most productive crops you can grow in a vegetable garden.

Collards may be direct-seeded or transplanted, depending on the desired harvest. Direct seed if smaller heads and single-cut harvests are desired. Using a walk-behind planter, densely plant rows of collards and cut before plants reach full size. If larger, full-size leaves are desired, we suggest transplanting. Transplanting allows for more consistent plant spacing and prevents seedlings from competing with weeds in the early stages of the plant.

We recommend starting transplants 3-4 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date. Collard transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray.

    I grew top bunch, Georgia Southern, vates, and champion in two different plots with different soil and water and sun. Flash was tops in all conditions. However I did have one that was more resistant to bolting but still, this is the best for me with top bunch a second
