Lots of mild greens that grow in all temperature conditions . Hot greenhouse in the summer and unheated with thin agrabond cover in the winter in zone 5. Never bolt as long as they dont get to dry. Does anyone know the official scientific name for this plant ?
I have been growing these for a number of years, in two different gardens. These greens are large and resilient, tolerant to a range of conditions. They produce lots of very big leaves! Their flavor is very mild-- I generally describe it as green, without any bitterness or assertive notes of any kind. As such, it's a good green to add into dishes where you want the vegetable, but not strong flavors. I planted about a 4 foot row of this variety, and had more greens than I could eat.
I liked the taste and flavor of the Holland greens. I would recommend it to grow.
A few years ago, a friend gave me a few seeds to try and I was sold immediately. I have been buying them every year since. Not only do these things refuse to bolt or get bitter or tough, they cook and freeze wonderfully- far better than any spinach or green I have tried/ And, they are delicious. If I had to choose only one green to plant to feed my family, this would be it. I imagine this would also juice wonderfully.
