Mild mannered green?

By: on 20 June 2018
When I was a kid, we sometimes had silverbeet thrust upon us and it was always that dark green bobbly leafed Fordhook Giant that was dished up. How it set my teeth in edge! No more. Now I grow the delightfully mild and tender Lucullus. Its almost chartreuse leaves look a treat in the garden, especially when grown with a beautiful lettuce like Red Velvet at its feet, or against a backdrop of purple perilla. The veg garden should be a feast for the eyes.
