Spotted Aleppo

The plant in the photo above is Spotted Aleppo, the heirloom variety mentioned in my post of February 18, 2011.

I'll be the first to admit that it is not a vary attractive plant, and I was tempted to title this post ancient and ugly.

It is, however, apparent to me that this will be a "do again" variety, to add texture and interest to our menu. It's redeeming qualities are that it grows quickly, and I seriously doubt that any problems such as tip burn, common to less robust varieties, will be an issue with this cultivar.
