(Sanguisorba minor) Tasty in salads, great cucumber-like flavor. An easy to grow green that has now become hard to find.

What are the pros? Pretty plants

What are the cons? Long time to get going

Review:

Germination rate was 100%. They take time to really take off though. They were stubby little plants.....alive, but small and just not doing much. Once they get going they really get going. The plants are pretty. The flavor is very mild but it's also getting pretty hot here. I suspect once it cools down a bit the flavor will be a bit more noticeable. I was hoping for that cucumbery taste people I've had when I tried this long ago. Once it gets going it is super easy. I don't do anything to or for it and it just grows. The chickens have actually dug the plant up (twice!) and I had to replant it and it is still kicking! Haha. No pests, no diseases....I'd definitely plant again but next time I'll start earlier as they do take some time to really take off.

What are the pros? Pretty and easy to grow.

What are the cons? Not much flavor.

Review:

This is an attractive plant. It grows well in a greenhouse and in a container. However, we find it too bland for our taste.

What are the pros? flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

Surprisingly good. I didn't pay much attention to it in my garden yet this year but just added some to a salad and it is delicious. Fresh, cucumber taste. I highly recommend! I bet it would be a good beverage garnish as well.

What are the pros? perennial, taste, easy

What are the cons? texture

Review:

I seeded this in 2015 and it has grown as a perennial in zone 5b. It's the only plant that looks alive in the snow! I even transplanted it at the beginning of 2016 - it looked terrible, but then it put up new shoots and looks great now. Because it is a perennial, I moved it to the herb garden where things don't get ripped up for the annual tilling. As other have said, it puts down strong roots and outlives everything else, but it doesn't seem invasive. Just forms a nice foot-high mound of foliage. I strip the leaves off the stems and put them in salad. They are a nice accent, but not great on their own. We like the taste but they are a bit mucilaginous, so on their own the texture isn't great.

Review:

I had heard the word burnet before but had no idea what it meant. These plants took a while to get started, but have become a fixture of my garden, where I have them growing at the edge of the bed; they are low and delicate-looking, so this is a perfect spot. The delightful flavor is so welcome, giving salads that cucumber-like freshness and lending themselves well to light dressings where their beautiful shape can best be appreciated. They are a surprise to friends when I serve salads with this wonderful green. To use these in salads, I cut or pick a handful and then zip the little leaves off the stems. I look forward to growing burnet year after year. Plants are healthy; no sign of pest damage.
