What are the pros? Really reminiscent of oyster!
What are the cons? Very slow start and growing
Wasn't sure how to plant this so I sunk some seeds 1/4" in my raised garden beds. Very slow to start and grow but at least I got a fairly good rate of germination (5 out of 6?) My plants have never gotten very big so I only now harvested a few leaves. The flavor is huge! I made some soup and added about 8 leaves along with other greens, and the broth tasted of the essence of oyster. I'm eager to try adding this to recipes with actual oyster, to see if I can boost flavor without adding more shellfish.
Might make for an interesting border plant as well, as the tiny blue flowers are pretty.
