Collard greens are a hardy member of the cabbage family. I've heard them
called "tree cabbage," but Tesco had them listed as collard greens last
time I was in the UK (I was *very* surprised to find them). The leaves
are dark green and very smooth. The stalks are very fibrous and tough.
The pic below is what they look like separated.

Hi,
Can anyone tell me what exactly are collard greens? I live in the UK
(Northeast) and I have never seen them. I assume they are called a
different name here. Are they the same as what we call spring cabbage?

Collard greens are a green leafy vegetable, like spinach. They're not
anything like what an American like me would call "Cabbage."
