Review:

Planted from starts in early Spring of 2012 into a raised bed and harvested 8 chokes that Spring. Overwintered them under compost & mulch, and by Spring of 2013 harvested 45 chokes. They are heavy feeders, and lots of compost is a must. Also use coffee grounds to add some acid back to my very alkaline limestone based soil. I also spray with compost tea to help fight the late Summer bugs that tend to overwhelm Texas at that time. Saved one globe for seeds from 2013, and have passed them along to a friend for next year. This is a winner!

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
