Luigiwu,
If you like mustard or collard greens, Baker has a few that have done exceptional in my CA heat.

Southern Giant Curled Mustard Greens

Georgia Southern Collard Greens (didn't see this one listed anymore, I may still have some seeds, I'd have to check.)

Green Wave Mustard Greens (first time growing this one.)

The first two I have grown the past 3 years now, and they always do well. Fast growing once established and didn't bolt once one me. I cooked with them primarily, not typically a green you eat raw.

Good luck.
