Prolific plant

I planted a few in my back yard and they are tolerating the heat (113 yesterday) and growing aggressively. Can’t wait to see how they produce. Judging by their progress so far, I have no doubt it will be a success.

Suprised me

Very strong seeds, I made a mistake using the plastic bag method for germination. Roots grew long and deep in one day. Will plant again in my garden but this time seed directly.

rating based on company, not seed--its too early to plant and evaluate the seed; just ask in july please
