Perhaps the most decorative and exciting vegetable introduction of recent times. With up to 7 different coloured stems, it is an ideal subject for the flower border! Enjoy its mild, sweet flavour when young, raw in salads or gently steamed.
Approx. 175 seeds
Outdoors: sow thinly April-July, where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 40cm (16") between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to 15cm (6") apart. Water well until plants are established. Regularly pick a few leaves and stems at a time, without stripping the plants, allowing them to continue growing. Harvest: July-November.
Plants usually die back through winter, but will 'come again' the following spring, to produce a further early crop before running to seed.
