I wish more central Florida gardeners would grow this ancient crop each winter once things really cool down. In Denver it laughed at late frosts and snows. I have not grown it in about four years. My seeds came yesterday, mailed some to two friends today. The pic is from that last chilly winter I grew loves and needs cold and is immune to freezes in my south Tampa yard. It likes damp soil so I grew it that year in a Water Wise Container Garden made from a scavenged bus tub from a restaurant dumpster. The flavor is mild and sweet and nutty.
