Growing Tips

Make several pickings during the late spring and early summer before hot weather. Sow again in midsummer for a fall crop. A light fall frost makes the pleasant flavor of the leaves even better. Bake them for tasty chips.

*These seeds are easy to sow, with a fun color coating that helps them germinate. However, the coating adds a few days to the germination time as compared to uncoated seeds.
