Blonde green leaves, mildly lemon-flavored, and quick growing from seed. A seasonal salad standard from September thru winter (in mild climates) and on into summer, when plants run to bloom. Pollen is food for several beneficials, including minute pirate bug, big eyed bug, and other generalist predators. This Eurasian native is eaten by many cultures, and is most often seen in US supermarkets in the Jewish food section where it can be found in glass jars providing the flavor base of a sour "Schav" soup. Our seed comes from our friends at Wild Garden Seeds.
