What are the pros? Easy for new grower

What are the cons? None

Review:

I bought these at Seed Bank in Petaluma. I planted next to some gem lettuce and forgot to use a marker. When these started to sprout, I was harvesting the leaves for salad. They were crunchy and sweet. As the stalks grew I noticed the small flowering heads on them and realized they were the raab I planted (my lettuce didn't fair well with our last rain). I haven't cut stalks yet to saute as some suggest but the flowers are beautiful and the hummingbirds seem to love them, so I will hold off for a few more weeks. This is my first season planting vegetables in a raised bed so I would say that this is good for any newbies. I planted these directly into the ground.

Review:

So I started these thinking they would do horrible, like most other broccoli type plants. Boy was I wrong! So far, zero pest issues and we're many many months in. Everything from the stalk, to the leaves, to the flowers and seeds pods are delicious. I keep hacking them back and they just keep on giving me delicious food. I have no idea how long these plants will last, I planted them last spring. They get up to about 4 feet tall and if I ignore them they fall over and sprout more "plants" from the trunk. I highly recommend growing this in Hawaii.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Needs Netting

Review:

This rapini is my new substitute for broccoli, which is harder to grow and finicky. I grew a bunch in Spring as well as for a Fall crop and I was pleasantly surprised. The taste is mild and I am addicted to the yellow flowers which have the sweetest taste when sauteed. I highly recommend using bird netting to lightly cover because the insects loved the taste as much as I did. I simply put the netting over and the rapini was left alone. It grows strong and will be a staple in my garden from now on.

Diff from supermarket raab

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Few pests.

What are the cons? Peel when cooking

Review:

This isn't the same as the raab we purchase from the supermarket. Leaves are much larger and mine were lighter in color. Not counting flower stalks I think they were about 18-24 inches tall. Other than slugs I did not encounter pest issues. I harvested about 2-3 times per plant. Save some leaves at the bottom and it will branch. Decline occurs around the same time as my snow peas. It is unclear if it is due to rising temperatures or frequent harvests. To cook, I peel the skin, boil, then saute until tender in minced garlic and salt. They not bitter when cooked this way.

What are the pros? easy to grow, easy to save see

What are the cons? bolts in heat, bugs love it

Review:

I recommend this to anyone who wants to a yummy veg that they can learn how to save seeds from easily. It bolts in the heat and the bugs are really interested in it (who can blame them, lots of flavour) but I grew it indoors last spring in pots , on my house plant shelf with much success! Invest in one pack of seeds and you'll never have to buy them again because each plant gives you tonnes of seeds in pods.
