This variety is early, heat and cold tolerant. The best variety for organic gardens. Large green leaves chalked full of vitamins and minerals. A healthy start to early spring salads and healthy green smoothies. Leaves, flowers and roots are all edible.
The roots can be dried and used through the winter months as a pro-biotic food for the gut. The Native American Indians used it as a tea to boost the immune system, detoxify the liver and combined with Mirabilis root for obesity.
We wanted to call this variety Sylvester Stallone but the name was already taken by some guy named Rocky.
Tip: Start 4 weeks ahead in flats to transplant out end of May after threat of frost. Seeds may take up to 2 weeks to germinate.
