this item alone was a product that my parents brought from Crespano de Grappa (Venento) Italy when they came to this country in 1948.I have been growing this for years only with the seeds I could buy when in Italy....now I see you have it for sale!! next year you are where I buy the seeds! no better salad than this!

I planted this early last spring, and cut at the eary stage to mix with other greens after about 35 days. I have a household garden and gave this about 4 square feet of a bed. It just kept coming back. Eventually, I let some grow out and it was great sauted with a little EVOO and garlic. These plants producted into late fall. Easy and prolific, as well as very tasty!
