What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow.
What are the cons? Cabbage worms decimated leaves
I really liked this variety in this year's Spring garden. It had good germination and was easy to grow. Unfortunately the cabbage worms loved it too. I don't like to use chemicals, so the leaves really were liberally enjoyed by these critters. I am just now ready to try these in the Fall garden. Perhaps too late a start, but we had heat until a week ago. I am trying screen houses (PVC frameworks covered with netting), and may make a plastic-sheet cover to turn it into more of a greenhouse, for cold nights. Maybe that will help it to produce for awhile. The flavor is wonderful, and it is such a terrific addition to stir-fries. Hope to have some for Winter stir fries and even as some tasty greens to add to hearty vegetable soup, or young leaves for salads. I definitely will have it in next Spring's garden, and anticipate a good crop now that the screen house is in place.
