Detailed Product Info

Komatsuna (also known as Tendergreen) is one of our favorite Asian greens. You can plant it from early spring through fall and eat the leaves, stems, and even flower heads; it survives the winter happily in an unheated tunnel or under row cover. Sometimes referred to as Japanese Spinach, you can use the leaves fresh when young. Wilt or braise when more mature for an unbeatably tender, melting, bright-green, sweet mild mustardy treat! Delicious, highly nutritious (plenty of calcium), and a beautiful light green shiny addition to any garden. If you try one new leafy vegetable this year, make it Komatsuna.

Growing Instructions

Komatsuna grows very quickly and is usually ready for harvest in about six weeks. Sow under protection 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant 3 weeks before last frost. Sow successively. Fall crops are most successful: sow July-August. Spring-sown crops must be harvested young to beat bolting; they also may need row cover to protect against flea beetle damage. All Asian mustards will overwinter with protection and give delicious greens through January, at least.
