What are the pros? Dr Seuss Plant

What are the cons? None - Love this plant

Review:

I love this plant for all the reasons the other reviewers listed. Great flavor and texture for a hearty green no matter how you prepare it... and I do everything I can think of with it. Soups and stews, saut?ed, braised in everything from beer to orange juice, baked in casseroles, quiches and frittatas. You name it, we've tried it that way and we've loved it. However, one of my favorite things about this plant is the growth habit. It will just keep getting taller and taller as you take leaves off from the bottom. The more you take off the faster it grows skyward until you have a plant with a long knobby woodsy stalk and a crown of black/green leaves that looks like it came from a Dr. Seuss book. We let them keep going until they fall over (usually between 5ft and 6ft tall). I've even beheaded ones that had flowered thinking they were done only to have them start producing new leaves and continue growing for 2 more feet and 20 or 30 more dinners. Alway keep a few going in your yard!

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
