What are the pros? Variety Taste

What are the cons? No ID, some are spiky

Review:

I could buy this again and again just for my self, I value eating a variety. It would be perfect if there was a list of the types. I wish I could identify, but I'm a noob gardener. I know a good portion was brassica, it attracted lots of white butterflies.

Review:

I have been very impressed so far with the performance of this mix. Came up fast and very evenly. But my market customers will want to know exactly what is in it so an explanation of this is needed.

What are the pros? Good winter crop

What are the cons? Wish I knew what was in it

Review:

I've have planted this in the fall for the last four years in a raised bed against the south side of our house.One packet lasts a couple seasons for us. If the winter isn't severe (z 7a) and we don't lose it to critters, we can eat greens for most of the winter. I've had more success with this than with lettuce. It works well in salad when picked young.There is a difference in the way some greens grow- some seem to resist cold better, some can take dry cold, some don't mind a lot of rain, etc. but we usually get something. That's the advantage of a mix. I just wish I knew what was in it.

What are the pros? .

What are the cons? Bolts fast, uneven mix

Review:

I planted this for the first time this spring and despite our cool summers in northern MN (almost zone 2), it has already bolted. I will be pulling it out and replacing with a fall crop. May try it again as a winter greenhouse item for home use.

What are the pros? Great variety and germination

What are the cons? Don't know what's in it

Review:

I love Asian greens, and thought this would be a great match for me to try! Many of them are high in calcium and iron, and as a vegan, it would be nutritious addition to my diet. I planted this in April, zone 9, and I'm harvesting baby leaves now! I'll thin it later and let some grow to maturity. The spring was erratic, with temps ranging from 40s to 80s, sometimes in the same day, but it grew well just the same. The variety is incredible! I recognize a variety of brassicas, such as kale, komatsuna, loose-leaf Asian cabbage, tatsoi, pak/bok choi, turnip greens (maybe), and more. It would be nice to know what's in it so I can make sure I'm not eating a weed (know your weeds--some are toxic). I got very good germination with seed a few years old. So far I've eaten it fresh, but can't wait to try a stir fry. A new favorite to grow every year!
