Greens

Overview

Greens — collards, kale, spinach, lettuce, mustard and turnips — are available almost year-round in Georgia with the highest volume harvested from late December through March. On New Year's day, greens are served with black-eyed peas and hog jowls, a southern tradition for good luck. In 2009, 17,543 acres were grown with Colquitt and Tift County leading in production.
