Hi everyone, grew these from a mixed seed package. I found these to be extremely resultant for seedlings and they earned a place in the collection. Does anyone know what they are.

I just separated them, the larger green one on the left. It has a real strong tap root. Non of the other ones had this.

This is the one with the tap root. I thought it was young for a definite as well but it did. I should have taken a picture of it before I planted it. Don't want to mess with it again.

That's what it looked like. One root in the center going straight down. Almost 2xs the plant is tall. Thanks for the info
