A beautiful heirloom strain originally curated by the Abundant Life Seed Foundation. Emerald green baby leaves with yellow stems are especially mild and sweet. Stem color intensifies with age to a rich gold at maturity. Wonderful in salads and soups. Grows to about 20-24 inches tall.
Direct seed outdoors 2-4 weeks before last frost, when ground can be worked (soil temp about 40°F). Plant 1/2" deep, 2" apart. Thin to 5" apart when leaves touching...we eat our thinnings as we go! For fall plantings: sow seeds 6-8 weeks before first frost. Overwinter with at least 2-4" mulch for an early spring crop.
