What are the pros? Structural integrity and size

Review:

The quality of the leaves, as in, the "sheen," is very high. These are the best "collard greens" that I grow (brassicae for salad or "cuvee"-portugese collards). Highly recommended, better than lacinato.

Review:

Though Gailan is associated with Asian cuisine in the United States, we love this green because it can be used in everything. It is a great broccoli substitute in any recipe calling for brocolli. The flavor is great, it matures much faster, it is easy to grow from seed, and there is no worry about whether or not it will form a head. If your garden is small and you can't have 6 broccoli plants dominating half of it all winter, gailan is the answer. You can grow the plants in tight rows and harvest out as they get large enough to use. The main danger with Gailan is that it will get left in the garden too long and will get tough. We succession plant it and harvest early, usually before the flower buds form--though it is fine even when the first flowers have formed. If you wait too much longer, it will get tough.

Review:

This is an easy green for indoor gardening. I just planted under regular shop lights with a timer set for 8hrs per day. In 5 wks I was getting greens for fresh salads. Very tasty.

Review:

My friend's grandfather warned that growing Gailan in Utah was crazy as it is "too dry." He was partially right. This was the thirstiest plant in my spring garden. However, the extra care paid off in delicious greens and even tastier blossoms (Yum!)

Review:

We have grown these Gailan both for fall harvest and now spring harvest and been very satisfied with both. Excellent taste in stir-fries: very crisp with a slight bitterness (think a milder broccoli rabe). Had very good germination and even tolerated transplanting. Planted in the fall, we harvested until the first frost (nov) and the few stalks that we left to flower were the last flowers in the community garden and were visited by bees until the end. In the spring, March transplants yielded harvests from mid April to early May.
