What are the pros? Taste, productivity
What are the cons? Bolts in heat
I'm located in a foggy cool area of SF and garden in a raised bed.. This variety has worked wonderfully in my garden. I grew this in the summer fall, and inadvertently currently have 6 plants who spontaneously popped up a month ago. Like another mentioned, I harvest when the leaves are small so haven't seem the enormous leaves.
The only word of warning would be to folks with warmer weather- I know it's to be expected but just to add in... I had several plants which popped up in late March and were doing well until we had an unexpected heat spell( for us! 67-75) for several days at a time for the last two weeks. The older plants are bolting but it's great for seed!
