What are the pros? prolific volunteers
What are the cons? flavor of non-Baker volunteers
Like many other growers' experience, these have 'naturalized', or invaded, many nooks & crannies in our Greenhouse. Fine with me. One writer says they attract 'hoppers. Sometimes ours have been decimated by field mice that seem to know what's good for 'em. They're easy to learn to recognize as volunteers and easy to pull if you want to. Our non-Baker origin volunteers have been PE-like bolt-o-matics in 125F summer daytime greenhouse temps. The seeds are super easy to collect and save. Gonna have to bone up on Purslane crossing, we may not really be able to 'replace' our ubiquitous volunteers with a tastier Baker Creek strain ;-)
