What are the pros? Taste, yield, ease of growth
What are the cons? None that I can think of.
Planted two varieties of "Dandelion" greens this spring; this one and the Italko Rosso varieties. The latter was beautiful with red ribs, but this one had a more mild bitter taste, not too overbearing and perfect in veggie scrambles. Adds a great body to salads and dishes and stays nearly 100% resistant to all pests in the garden including slugs, ear-wigs, caterpillars, aphids, et cetera. Good for Italian. Planted in spring and when it finally began to bolt a couple weeks ago I cut the tower of buds forming. Two more came back in it's place and I'm letting them flower. I just now discovered they have beautiful deep blue flowers that should be advertised with these seeds! I don't know which I like better now, the leaf of the flower! I'm thinking this might make a good center-piece in a pot of leafy greens next year - I will absolutely grow this variety again. Leaves are ready to eat quickly but it takes a very long season to flower.
