I have always found that the ones with the red stems/leaf veins grow smaller and do not overwinter as well as other varietie and will post some comparative pictures tommorow.

Bright Lights has been my first harvest - took 6 weeks and I have separated stalks from leaves and made a great fritata - spud too. Fantastic. Regrows really well too.
