What are the pros? Grew nicely & reseeded itself

What are the cons? None-it's a great edible plant

Review:

I used to grow this when I lived in a valley, about 1/4 mile from my current location (atop the highest elevation in the county). It grew nicely in pitiful "soil". In fact, I tried to grow it both in a container and on a terrace, but it seemed to prefer the gravelly rocks of the driveway over my nurturing environment. :) Tasted good and looked better. It was always a joy to see it growing. Mine were a deeper purplish color than the ones pictured. Ordering Aurora mix this year for more variety in the spring. This plant does not tolerate the heat well. But, grows plenty to eat in the spring, and sometimes kicks out new growth in the fall's cooling temps here in far NE Oklahoma.

What are the pros? Gorgeous color!

What are the cons? Deer eat it every time!!

Review:

I love this gorgeous salad "green"!! Unfortunately, so do the deer! Always the first thing they eat in the garden. Even Ropel doesn't help. It must beam out signals to them....I even planted them under tents of beans, peas, etc. GONE! If you don't have varmints to deal with, you will love this.

What are the pros? Wonderful color, nice flavor

What are the cons? A little slow to get going

Review:

I love this plant- the bright leaves have a pleasing spinach like texture, a mild (but tasty) flavor and color is even better than it looks in the photos! Even the first little sprouts a wonderful, saturated magenta. Only down side so far is that they don't seem to be growing as vigorously as they could be- but we haven't any truly hot weather yet- it might just be waiting for summer to get started!

Review:

Seeds have come in the mail and we can hardly wait to try growing this beautiful plant - and making the Romanian soup mentioned in another review. We even coincidentally ordered lavage seeds to try this year. I would love to find out how you pronounce the name of this plant. Do you pronounce the ch as ck?
