Ratings & Reviews

OK

The germination rate was good, but the vigour, root size and quality was highly variable. The well sized roots were delicious though - I only wish I'd left them in the ground to go to seed!

A little tougher than in the shops

Not sure if its how i grew them or the variety but it was a little bit tougher than normal
