Cool weather heralds the season for growing ‘greens’ in central Florida. ‘Greens’ to the southerner usually means collards, but ‘greens’ to the vegetable connoisseur encompasses an entire palette of color, texture and flavor from delicate salad greens to robust cooking greens. Asian greens are gaining in popularity in home gardens. If you haven’t tried growing oriental greens, give them a place in your garden.
