Sounds like someone's been perusing the same "seeds for weird edible things" websites I have!

You'll have to let us know the outcome :)

It looks lovely (the picture on the seed packet) Spinachy sort of leaves, which you cook like spinach, strawberry looking  growths/nodules growing up the leaves and, apparently a root you can eat like radish.
Plant World, Devon if you fancy trying them.

Will send them off tomorrow. Best to google for growing instructions as the ones on the packet are a bit basic. They look interesting if nothing else. :)

And I don't suppose I could send you any. If I am allowed, Plant World is about a mile from me.

Yes, they do, Robert. I've just looked into it and, I'm afraid Blond will have to look in Oz for them.
