Attractive golden-colored flower heads produce up to 1 lb of white seed per plant, making this a very heavy producer. Plants grow to about 6’ and are easy to grow.

What are the pros? Beautiful and unusual

What are the cons? Challenging harvest

Review:

I planted six of these guys in mid-May. It's now July, and they have enormous orange heads so heavy that the plants bend towards the ground if you don't stake them! The golden seed heads don't just appear at the top, but rather all along the stems (at least for me). I think they're very pretty plants and are more than worth the space simply for their aesthetic virtues. I'm less sold on them as food. The greens are edible and I've used them much as you might use chard, but they're not especially delicious. As for the seeds, it's early in the season and the birds have already come poking about, taking their share. The harvest process is involved. The multiple seed heads will have to be cut off from the stalks, the seeds shaken from their hulls, the chaff blown off... it's just a lot of work for a home gardener without special equipment. Bottom line, I think of them as flowers first, food second, and by that measure they're awesome.

What are the pros? easy to grow, self seeds

What are the cons? time consuming to harvest

Review:

Most amazing plant in my 2016 garden. Some plants grew 9 feet high. The bronze color of the seed heads are striking. Knew they were ready for harvest when all the birds came around. The King Parrots especially loved them. Harvesting and winnowing them is a job, though. Took me days to do, but I managed 2 quarts of seed from the 15 plants that I made room for. I don't know if that's good or not, but it was good enough for me. I did try to pop them, but have yet to do so successfully. A lot of seed was blown into a nearby raised bed and they readily germinated giving me plenty of new leaves to enjoy before a light frost wiped them out. This is a magical plant to grow and everyone should try it, even once, just for the thrill of it.

What are the pros? puts on the head way faster

What are the cons? none

Review:

This puts on its seed head way way faster than any other varity, its a good month and half faster than any other varity, so about 45 plants should fill up a 5 gallon bucket full of seed, i could be wrong but that sounds about right , if you get a pound of seed per plant. Have fun and God bless

What are the pros? easy, massive, show stopper

What are the cons? none

Review:

Even though I started a little on the late side this year, after installing the raised beds, these suckers grew quickly and like Jack & the Beanstalk fast! Can't wait for them to produce the seeds. Definitely planting more and different varieties next year!
