What are the pros? didn't bolt in heat
What are the cons? bitter, slow starter
I grow my greens in rich homemade compost with added rockdust minerals. Of the 5 greens I grew this summer, these had the most bitter green flavor. The stalks are nice and crisp, full of water and stringy like celery. The leaves get to be huge, and it loses tenderness if you let it get big. Pick constantly, and do not let the plant get mature leaves and stalks for optimum flavor. Slow to start growing, these were the last to mature. Very heat tolerant, grown in zone 9b and did not bolt at all before being yanked up for fall planting in October.
