What are the pros? Easy to grow from seed, quick
What are the cons? tough and bitter
I guess I should just stick to "mild" veggies but I felt like we really bombed on this one. I planted two 4' rows and a few weeks later we had rapini, so no trouble to grow. But I think the description of "asparagus-like" in the description should be changed. I expected a thicker, more tender stalk. The stalks were stringy and tough and the leaves were hairy/spiny and bitter; I'd really rather eat the pigweed that I pulled out of the same space.
I'd appreciate some cooking pointers (I chopped and sauteed it with some milder greens mixed in) in case I'm missing out on something here, since I still have quite a bit of the packet left and it's so easy to grow.
