This is  a perennial crop so requires a permanent site. It has distinctive grey/blue green fleshy leaves and gives a beautiful display of pure white flowers in late spring. However as a food crop it is the early shoots (like asparagus) that are eaten raw or cooked. They are best when blanched so put a thick layer of straw over them in autumn/winter. Donít start cropping until the second year. The seeds come in a little roundish fruit each containing only one seed, which are sown whole.

2 of 5 Hard work September 27, 2017
Reviewer: Mark from Tallaght  
I found these very hard to get going and it took up to 3 years for some to get going. Leaves can come quick given the right conditions so you have got to keep on top of them. I have not tried the blanching but may do so this winter. As I have yet to have success consistently I can only give 2 stars but thats really down to my lack of knowledge growing them. But not sure if I'd take them on if I was a beginner.
