What are the pros? Tasty, nice looking
What are the cons? Leaves are quite large
These are great tasting and looking, just picked 3 today almost a little early (about 3" wide, 2" tall) and theyre great raw. Haven't tried cooked yet but I like these in skillets in the place of hash browns. Can't remember how many I planted but most seem to have sprouted. The leaves, unlike the description here, were gigantic, rivaling/exceeding my broccoli leaves in size - they are huge. I've saved them all as well but as they are so large now they and the stems especially are quite bitter, going to try in stir fry. I grew mine in mushroom composted soil, all organic.
These are very pest resistant as far as I can tell, little to no damage on leaf and none on the actual bulb. The leaves from a very young size are completely waterproof which is neat - water beads right off them down to the bulb meaning less chance of sun dmg from water droplets.
Dunno what else to say, glad I picked these up and will be letting some go to seed, and planting more next yr!
