OK - what plant is this?

Developed by James Wong- This exotic Incan vegetable is possibly the most flavourful and versatile of all salad crops, and one that will grow almost anywhere you like. An almost inexhaustible supply of peppery leaves, watercress flavoured flower and crisp seed pods.

Its yours for "2.49 for 25 seeds.

Maybe a quick recap of the kalettes / flower sprouts episode. For unsuspecting new growers.
My very short version....... they’re the same thing.

Top marks to Mr F for being clear.

So Kalettes is a registered trademark for an existing vegetable? How the #@&% does that work?

BTW, I was rather amused to see that Mr Fothergill trades Down Under - I follow an Aussie vegetable gardener (Self Sufficient Me) on YouTube and his seed packets are often from Mr F.

I follow him mainly out of curiosity about what grows well in other climates, and also because it cracks me up to hear him explain that beetroot are best grown in winter when daytime temperatures are "only" 25-28 Celsius...
How much veg and wildlife can I pack into a 6m x 8m garden in suburban Cambridge? Let us find out!  Smile

I got it! But only after googling, so can't claim to be clever. What a load of hoo haa they'll spout just to sell a common or garden seed. We live in the age of 'spin' don't we?
I'm not aging, I just need re-potting.

I like the taste of nasturtium flowers but stopped eating them as felt sorry for the little black beetles that seem to live in them.

I wonder if James Wong gets so much per pack sold.

"Nasturtium leaves Seeds" https://www.suttons.co.uk/Gardening/Vege...171602.htm

What really bugs me is the bit "Developed by James Wong". What on earth has he developed apart from a healthy bank balance??
