The large, strong-flavored leaves withstand the heat and are also raised as a source of winter greens. They are grown mainly in the southern part of the U.S. Like all greens, they are good sources of vitamin A, as well as providing some vitamin C. Collards can be steamed like spinach, and are particularly good when topped with melted cheese. In the South, they are often boiled with salt pork as a regional favorite.
