Info-sheet: Rare and Delicious Greens for Florida Gardens
Florida is a great state for salad greens. Though we can't grow lettuce through our hot summers, there are some superior alternatives that take the heat and keep on kicking.
Chaya, Cranberry Hibiscus, Hibiscus Manihot, Feather Cockscomb, Longevity Spinach, Okinawa Spinach, Katuk and Surinam Purslane are all wonderful plants - and all but one of them are perennial.
I recently created a new handout on these great greens for Florida. Since the info will prove useful to those of you who want salads during the blast oven of summer, I'm reproducing it here.
Hope you find it helpful.
NOTE: You can download this handout and it will be easier to read. Just drag and drop to your desktop, then you can print it. If you post it elsewhere, just link back to this site.
