I didn't get as many heads as I expected (wanted), but the leaves are excellent! I would describe them as a sweet tasting kale, but less cooking time...use as you would Swiss Chard.

Here in Western Oregon I plant these in September and eat them in December and January. Our winters tend to be in the 30's and 40's with a lot of rain and these make beautiful big purple heads during the middle of our winter when it is really welcome. They're really in between broccoli and cauliflower, denser than broccoli and less dense than cauliflower but they taste great.
