An unusual, swollen stemmed brassica with a tasty, peppery taste. Happy growing in lighter, sandy soils, although it will grow in heavier soils. Sow seeds either direct (if temperatures above 10oC) or under cover, in mid-spring. Transplant seedlings before they are 5cm in height. Water well to encourage the stems to thicken. Harvest when about golf or tennis ball size.
Sow seed: 2cm deep, 23cm apart
Varieties: Kongo, Quickstar
