Description
Agretti or Italian Saltbush is the latest rage in the high-end restaurants. In Italy it grows near the sea where there is salty spray and it tolerates brackish irrigation/flowing water to the roots. There is a somewhat salty and somewhat bitter taste to the "fronds" and stems that is traditionally and tastily sauteed in olive oil and mixed with other flavors. The plants usually grow to near 24'' tall if allowed to and are ready to pick from in about 60 days in typical conditions. Agretti seed needs to be stored in warmer conditions than most other seed - about 60-70 degrees for optimum germination, as well as not too dry humidity perhaps even on the humid side. The seeds do not normally keep their germination from year to year, rather each new year you need new seed because of the physiological characteristics of the plants and their seeds. From Bavicchi of Italy, Untreated seed.

I had tasted Agretti last year and wanted to start some in my greenhouse to sell to my restaurant customers. I had looked everywhere for these seeds..Thank you for carrying them. My customers will love Agretti....!!!

Agretti seeds
I bought these seeds to grow in the Florida Keys, where we have occasional saltwater innundation in our yard and I can't grow anything else!! Looking forward to lovely salads and sauteed agretti. By the way, the seeds came carefully packaged and quickly!

Agretti Seed Order
I am very happy with the swiftness of my order arriving. I am excited to plant this spring. All of the seeds I have purchased from your company have out performed the seeds I have bought from the garden store and other online sources.
