Great, fast growing variety. I wasn't intending to plant this last summer then the packet got wet so into the dirt they went. Planted in late July, by end of September we had chokes! Before the sun fell below the tree lines for the season we got around 14 chokes off our two mature plants. Once they start to form the buds they almost double overnight. Expecting a bounty early next season. Thank you for the great seed!
