this grew quickly,trouble free from early spring. Provided good harvest, which we used for salads, for about two months before starting to bolt. There were about five attractive varieties in this mix, having a range of nice, full taste,though none was too fired hot. Will grow again.
Beautiful and tasty!

These came up quickly when I planted them in late July in interior Alaska. I planted them pretty heavily and have been thinning as I harvest. They are a beautiful mix and are adding a great spiciness to my salads. I will plant more next year to sell at our local farmer's market.
