Very easy to grow

21 July 2018
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

By: on 23 March 2016
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+++
