Excellent

By: on 10 May 2016
I was under the impression that this was a difficult seed to germinate, but all eight seeds we started came up and flourished. The leaves are delicious (always blanch first to lower the oxalate concentration) and keep their shape much better than English spinach when cooked. Will definitely be growing this vegetable every year.
