I grew these a few years ago because they are so unusual and I liked the name. They became a good conversation piece since they are so beautiful and most people have never heard of them. The flavor is somewhat bland and uninteresting to me, but some of my co-workers thought they were luscious so I took most of my crop to work. They are easy to grow and will come back year after year whether you want them to or not. According to Seed Savers Exchange, they originated in Armenia.
