Rats tail radishKhol RabiOkra....too much effort for sod all result!I would add all melons as they are my nemesis and I've tried all sorts of varieties in all sorts of settings and have yet to grow a melon bigger than a tennis ball. I can however grow Sharks fin melons bigger than basketballs but sadly they are not as nice to eat! And grow like Triffids!
I don't want to rant, but whatever you think about the French they know about food and they love salsify - they even buy it bottled
Salsify has been mentioned a couple of times but curiously the criticism seems to relate to poor yields. I've never found it difficult to produce decent yields. Also it tastes pretty good too. The real problem and the reason I stopped growing it was it's digestibility. To be blunt it makes you fart. And how! Volumes of gas you would not believe
Yes, many people are intolerant, some even classify it as an allergy....

I prefer the flavour to potatoes - and no blight problem.Cheers.
