Since 1934 this has been the standard green variety for home gardens. It is vigorous, tolerates heat, cold, and partial shade. It is slow to bolt, so the harvest period lasts months. Young leaves can be added raw to salads and larger leaves are steamed, stir-fried or sautéed with olive oil and garlic or onion. Leaves 20cm/10" or shorter are best. Does well in large containers. 50-60 days.
