Ratings & Reviews

Very easy to grow

Same as the Silverbeet Fordhook giant in terms of ease of growth. Almost 100% seed germination. Very little maintenance, just daily watering. Insects leave them alone. I actually have too many plants, I planted all the seeds out because I thought I would accidentally kill more of these plants.
