Review:

This is one of my favorite veggies. I love it fresh and raw and the stems have a crunch like celery and taste much like beets and such a pretty red color. The and stems are excellent raw. They are good cooked and frozen also; however, fresh and raw is awesome! Have a flavor similar to beets and if you like beets you will love this. The plants are pretty enough for a flower garden also. Grew it last year for first time and will continue to grow it. Planted seeds outside and transplanted to thin them and a few plants made fresh greens all summer long and enough to freeze as I took off outside leaves and they just kept producing.

Review:

I live in Zone 5 and plant this every year. Slow to start in Spring but once going and thin them out they keep growing till the late fall. It handles high heat (90F) and grow anywhere from 12" to 16" tall. Eat it all year. Sometimes I use it to shade the lettuce in the Summer. Last but not least, I plant it in the perennial garden for color.

What are the pros? Colors fade when cooked

What are the cons? didn't plant enough

I planted this last season and could have planted earlier. It produced until the hottest days of summer in our poor soil and is great tasting. I am working to improve the ground for a better crop this year.
