What are the pros? Easy to grow,
What are the cons? Not very pest resistant
This is a great little plant. When I first planted it, it took several months before it started doing well. It grew very slowly with constant die back from insect damage.
Then all of a sudden it took off. Since then it has grown to a ball of perhaps 18 inches in diameter. It looks like a romaine lettuce plant with the large leaves pointing out in all directions.
The leaves are sour but in a good way. They work particularly well in smoothies where they don't overpower fruit to the degree kale or spinach does.
