What are the pros? Flavor and Tenderness
What are the cons? Takes a lot of space
Like all brassica type plants this takes a lot of space in your garden. It is well worth the square foot investment, though. With love, you get a tender globe of goodness that can we usually just eat raw in french fry sized chunks. Salted and eaten as veggie sticks they are awesome. If I had space for more, I would grow more and have them in soups, mashed, you name it. These are easier to peel than some varieties, grow larger, and stay tender with a mild flavor. I have trees on each side of my yard, so my sun time is short, thus these take longer to mature than if I had a full day of sun. They do nicely nonetheless and grow kind of like broccoli. The leaves are tasty as well and cook up like Kale. It is one of our favorite veggies and are happy to have the larger variety, as the small ones just never size up for us to make it worth the investment of space.
