Detailed Product Info

Green leaves and purple stems give way to tender edible flower stalks. Harvest just as buds begin to open by cutting or snapping stem with leaves. Use like raab: saute the stems, leaves and florets and flavor lightly. If allowed to over mature, the stems become tough.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow outdoors under protection as soon as the soil can be worked. Sow in successions every few weeks for best results. Can be grown as cut-and-come-again as well. Harvest when young to avoid tough stems. Though Hon Tsai Tai does quite well in the summer, fall crops are sweeter and do not have to be harvested as quickly.

sakad green Review by frank
While I have just discovered your site I have been growing this for at least two years. I use it as a salad green, it adds a nice light bite and people like the edible flowers both for taste and visual effect. Also hard to find, your only the second site where I have found it. (Posted on 12/24/13)
