Annual herb with richly flavoured, succulent salad greens. Pungent. Leaves are ready to harvest in just a few weeks from planting and should be used when young.
Superb for eating fresh or added to a variety of dishes. Add leaves to salads, sandwiches or use as a garnish. Cook like spinach and cover with butter or cream sauce.
Plant in a reliably sunny spot. Prefers fertile, well-drained soil and cooler temperatures. Keep soil moist, watering freely in dry weather. Harvest foliage as needed.
