Very easy to grow, great inter-cropping soil shade, beautiful.
Prolific seeds, mild tasting green that is great for salads and juicing, braises, mincing for soups or rice. I grew it during fall 2013 and planted more in February 2014. Great inter-cropping crop, to shade the soil, conserve water. I live in the high desert (3500 ft) of southern California and the cool months are October through March. I have built raised bed planters and enclosed them with 1/4" hardware cloth and 50% Aluminet shade cloth, so it is cooler than being open to the sun. We'll see how long into the heat I can grow it :-) Paradise Farm, California
