Learn To Grow It

This crop can be direct seeded into warm soil after the last spring frost. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.

These seeds can be broadcast evenly in sections of the garden to create a bed of tender leaves and thinned to 4 inches apart as they mature. Plant your seeds 1/4-3/4 in. deep.
 

These leaves can be harvested for fresh eating when they are 3-5 in. and for cooking as they mature.You should harvest the roots when they are 2-4 inches in diameter.

This crop prefers to grow in cool seasons, so gardeners in Zones 8 and warmer should plant this vegetable in the fall. The shade from taller plants can help keep this vegetable cool in sunny gardens and warm climates.
