Looks and tastes good. The older leaves can be used as wraps and the stems provide some crunch too. Easy to grow and provides leaf most of the year round. I grow some every year.

Super veg, a great hit with all the family! Looks real pretty in the veg garden or in a flower bed. Easy to grow in absolutely any soil or climate Depending on how cold your area is its almost an all year veg, if it dies off due to cold it will come back once the weather warms up a bit in early spring. even when it starts to bolt you can pick off the flower heads and force the growth back down to leaves and have a few more weeks eating out of it. We prefer it to spinach as its oxalic acid content is less so it has a softer taste which is more appealing for kids. Some people like the young leaves raw in a salad but we prefer it steamed...stalks and all......we never plant enough :)
