grew back in two weeks from a hail hailstorm, handles 45c heat . older leaves are great for Palak paneer, just ad a little extra spice for the bitterness.

Easy crop

Great germination rate and easy to grow for beginners.

Very easy to grow

These had very high germination rate, they grow quite fast and are very low maintenance. I grew them even during winter (Sydney) and they did very well. I highly recommend this crop for beginner gardeners (like myself) as it was just so easy to grow!

Fantastic grower

Very fast growing, It was my first year growing any veggies and I had this and Mizuna growing at the same time, they both went crazy (Melbourne location) so many leaves I had to share with neighbours and family. I ended up flash boiling heaps of it, squeezing out the water and freezing it so I have a lot to add to stir fry's and curry's even though its not in my garden. Fantastic seeds. A+++
