What are the pros? Fast growing, tastes
What are the cons? Aphids love it
I love this stuff so much. It came up really fast in the hottest, driest part of the summer, and really thrived. The first batch got completely infested with aphids from my melon patch, but I cut it down and cleared out the old melon vines, and the plants grew back with no aphids to be found. It grows vigorously and takes the heat and the cold. I just harvested some today, December 1st, that withstood a 25 degree night. It doesn't taste spicy at all to me, and it makes a fantastic salad. The second cutting didn't have a hint of bitterness. It also has a firmer texture than lettuce, which makes it easier to clean and store.
