A common garden crop grown in the coastal plain region of North and South Carolina (United States) is the non-heading, leafy green type of Brassica oleracea L. known as collard (B. oleracea L. subsp. oleracea convar. acephala (DC.) Alef. var. viridis L.). Predominantly a fall and winter vegetable in this region, collard is often the only green planting to be found in the yard or garden of a rural home during these cool seasons. Historically, the traditional collard patch and even commercial… 

AFLP analysis of genetic diversity in leafy kale (Brassica oleracea L. convar. acephala (DC.) Alef.) landraces, cultivars and wild populations in Europe

The results indicate that a kale population found in a natural habitat in Denmark was probably not truly wild but most likely an escape from a cultivated Danish kale that had subsequently become naturalized.

From landrace to modern hybrid broccoli: the genomic and morphological domestication syndrome within a diverse B. oleracea collection

Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of Collard Landraces and their Relationship to Other Brassica oleracea Crops

The previous placement of collard with the cabbage family was confirmed through phylogenetic analysis and principal coordinates analysis (PCoA), allowing for sufficient coverage of the genome for GWAS using the physical positions of the 8273 SNPs polymorphic among the landraces.

Different Shades of Kale—Approaches to Analyze Kale Variety Interrelations

Brassica oleracea is a vegetable crop with an amazing morphological diversity. Among the various crops derived from B. oleracea, kale has been in the spotlight globally due to its various

Collard landraces are novel sources of glucoraphanin and other aliphatic glucosinolates

The glucosinolate make-up of the edible parts of some Brassica oleracea L. viridis crops has been investigated previously, but the leafy-green collard remains relatively unstudied, and the potential of collard as a target for chemoprotective-based plant breeding is determined.

Brassicaceae in Agriculture

The agricultural role of the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) or mustard family is reviewed, which includes many economically important edible and industrial oilseed, vegetable, condiment, and fodder crop, and also includes the molecular plant model, such as Arabidopsis thaliana.

Evidence for two domestication lineages supporting a middle-eastern origin for Brassica oleracea crops from diversified kale populations

Abstract Brassica oleracea displays enormous phenotypic variation, including vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, kales etc. Its domestication has not been clarified, despite



Characterization of Fusarium Yellows Resistance in Collard.

Results of this research indicate that choice of cultivar is a critical factor in producing collard where conditions favor infection by F. oxysporum f.

Collards in North Carolina

The collard plant has flourished as an important garden food crop in the U.S. South since the early nineteenth century because it is able to endure hot summers and still thrive in winter, when it is
