I think the person may be referring to the way some of the collard 
varieties grow in my part of the country. Vates, etc. will grow kinda 
tree-like with a 3-4 foot central stem that gets 'nude' as you pick 
leaves up the stem. Other varieties such as Morris Heading don't have 
this growth habit...they're more cabbage like in their habit.
