    Far as I'm aware its a spinach....the tastiest greens on the planet apparently and the Norwegians are holding on to it. There's one supplier in UK...hopefully demand will increase and more places will offer it.

    Is it expensive to source the seed from UK supplier ?

    If you can find a cheaper supplier in Finland I could possibly get it brought over

    I've found a UK supplier and have emailed to see if they still have stock. Website is Cool Temperate - Welcome Does look a very interesting plant

    Just had an email back - no stock until Autumn 2012

    Not sure why, but I don't fancy that at all, would probably have to taste it first!
