What are the pros? pale green color
What are the cons? Didn't thrive; stem not smooth
I ordered this because last year's darling, May Queen, was not available, so I can't help comparing the two. Butter King has never really come to much in my garden; the leaves tend to look anemic, and the heads don't grow large or ever look really mature. Also, I find that each leaf has little studs or bumps along its spine, so I find myself tearing each leaf carefully in half to remove the spine. A disappointment here in dry Northern California; maybe better where there's more humidity?
