What are the pros? Grows fast in Australia

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

I was given a few seedlings by a friend here on the East Coast of Australia and started them in coir, perlite and vermiculite mix with balanced liquid fertilizer. They took a week or so to get over the trip home and also being planted out from almost completely bare, with negligible numbers of roots, but a few survived and then accelerated out of the pot rapidly with a bit of balancedfood and water. (In hindsight, I should have treated them like cuttings for the first few weeks) Oh well, live and learn. After about 5 weeks are a good 5 foot long and starting to fill out in my fairly shady back yard, climbing all over my tomatoes currently. Weather now has been in the high 70s rising to 90s with warm nights too, but are growing very well indeed, love our southern heat and humidity. Also corn this year for the first time, impressedwith yield/flavou starting as soon as the garden bed/ground temperature in late winter toggled 55 degrees, germinate corn in tallcells against sunnywall.

Review:

I recommend this vine to anyone. If you just need shade on a patio and don't like eating greens. leaves are tasty raw and cooked. Very nutritious. Loves heat and humidity. We are growing it on a trellis in a raised bed with rich potting soil next to our deck.

What are the pros? Strong vine, Pest Free

What are the cons? Low germination

Review:

Tried this spinach as a heat loving alternative, as my regular spinach always bolted too soon. First time I tried growing in our heavier clay soils had zero germination, but this year, in rich composted soil in raised beds, half germinated when temps got to the 80s in summer, then grew very very quickly to climb up alongside my bean trellises..highest production right now in late summer/early fall...I can pick leaves every other day and new ones quickly sprout! Very productive. Taste is not the best raw, not at all like spinach, but used in saut?ed greens mixes or my homemade sprout crackers, works great. Thick rubbery leaves that were pest free and only very mildly bothered by signs of disease.

Review:

I ORIGINALLY PURCHASED THIS PLANT SEED AS A HOPEFUL SOLUTION TO OUR YEAR AROUND WARM WEATHER AND MY NEED FOR A LOT OF EXPENSIVE GROCERY STORE ORGANIC SPINACH FOR MY SMOOTHIES. WOW, THIS WAS EASY TO GROW. IT BOLTED UP OUT OF THE POTTING MIX... STONG AND HEALTHY PLANTS. I ALSO PROPAGAGED SOME FROM A LOCALLY PURCHASED BAG OF GREENS. THAT WAS SUPER EASY ALSO. THIS SPINACH IS GREAT FOR THE SPINACH FACOR IN MY MORNING GREEN DRINKS AND I HAVE ENJOYED ITS MILD TASTE RIGHT OFF THE VINE. I WILL BE TRYING IT IN MY SALADS NEXT AND FULLY EXPECT IT TO CONTINUE TO BE A WINNING FLAVOR ADDITION.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! ALSO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SEED COMPANY!! THANKS FOR HAVING THIS GREAT PRODUCT
