Collard tree

Why is this plant wonderful:

This is an evergreen perennial edible. This means that you plant it once and you can harvest it year round, for years. So little work, constant harvest.
It is in the brassica family, related to kale etc. In terms of nutrition, this is a superfood, higher than kale in some respects. Among the highest calcium content among food plants.

Care instructions: Stake up to grow vertically; otherwise will fall to the sides (like tomato plants). Can grow up to 8 feet tall. Plant in well amended soil. Water regularly until well established.
Sun requirement: Partial shade
