While working on a retelling of Rapunzel, I found this place that sells unusual seeds: http://www.cherrygal.com/turniprampionheirloomseeds2010-p-7164.html

Of course, I had to get some rapunzel seeds. And there were so many interesting things, this is what I ended up getting:

Rapunzel
Purslane mix
Tom Thumb Peas
Purple Plum radish
Strawberry spinach
Dragon Tongue mustard
Soapwort

They also have Dragon Tail beans:

Has anyone here tried growing or cooking rampion/rapunzel?

Watching this thread!
I have tried strawberry spinach - it didn't germinate. That could have been any number of reasons, dubious seed supply is at the top of my list. I wanted it for my 12th century monastery garden patch.
Soapwart is a weed in New Zealand. No chance of ever growing it.

I've been told my seeds are in. I may be able to pick them up next week. I wish it was warm enough to plant them!
