What are the pros? Stunningly beautiful

What are the cons? I should have planting in July

Review:

I planted these in a raised bed and nurtured like babies. All but 1 of the plants bolted pretty much immediately. I tweeted @rareseeds who said yeah, maybe plant later? The one that didn't bolt formed a head more beautiful than the photo show here. I harvested and ate in December. So, lesson learned! Will plant way later. Otherwise, exactly as advertised.

What are the pros? what grew was tasty

What are the cons? wanted romanesco

Review:

Like other reviews, what grew was not as pictured. It was so different, I am sure the seeds were not romanesco, as the package claimed. What grew was more like a broccolini. Small heads with several smaller 'sucker' heads coming up in several parts. It was delicious saut?ed in a little butter and it grew well, but not as advertised.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? No heads

Review:

Big huge leafy plants but little/no heads. The small ones looked nothing like the picture and flowered immediately. Not sure what I did wrong.

What are the pros? beautiful fractal like heads

What are the cons? none

Review:

One of my favorites I first saw at a farmers market in WA. Upon seeing the seeds here I had to grow them. It was extremely easy. Seeds popped in no time had many a nesco to share and eat. We even pickled some and its fantastic. This will forever be in my garden.

What are the pros? unusual, great taste

What are the cons? poor germination or all leaves

Review:

Finally, we kept trying to get this plant to make a head (usually all leaves) and often poor germination. This year we achieved our goal. It is a fantastic and unusual plant and we love the taste. It seldom reaches the kitchen. We will plant it again even if it does give us trouble!
