I love this green! It grows well in the spring & fall, is prolific, tastes amazing and freezes well so you can enjoy it all winter long.

The variety grows well in the desert climate if planted early. The greens are deeply colored and well formed leaves. Good deep flavor that goes a long way. The local chefs are delighted to have a local grower with this product as it doesn't have a long shelf life. Does tend to bolt when the weather warms.
