Description

Quick-growing and a massive producer from only minimal space, we use the water-filled, succulent leaves raw in salad and wilted quickly – just like spinach as a green. This is one of our mainstays for winter and spring picking in a glasshouse, or you can sow and grow it outside for the main growing season.

Care Tips

Cold tolerant once established (though not fully hardy)
