One of my personal favorites.

Easy to introduce this herb to my garden club because the plants were so full with tons of flavor . When I would say taste it, it tastes like cucumber, I got that "look". then , it really does. Great addition to caprice or any tomato with a touch of good olive oil

Grows well outside in pots. Inside it is more delicate to try to grow under lights. Can be done though. All things take time to learn how to grow them.
