    We got these seeds in late February/early March and started them indoors due to very cold temperatures in the Denver area. They sprouted quickly and were transplanted outside in mid/late March. Our crazy temperature swings are testing them, but so far they have survived low temperatures of 12F!!! I don’t know about production yet, but they are very hardy so far.

    I have really experienced the plant yet in its entirety, I have had them in our new garden on a light watering schedule and the plants are about 4 inches tall right now. They survived some frost damage from when they were smaller. I started them indoors under grow light in a tray of soil and sprouted them before I transplanted them. They look to be resilient an I look forward to the harvest but I would be able to provide a better revue after we've been able to harvest.
