A high-yielding, versatile vegetable with exquisite taste!
Also known as Chinese kale, Chinese broccoli, or gai lan. A popular Chinese vegetable with tender, sweet stems, leaves, and florets. The florets can be used like broccoli, broccolini, or raab, but the juicy stems will surprise you with their sweet snappiness! The plant is slow to bolt and resists turning fibrous in the heat. And don’t be shy about harvesting from the multitudes of shoots: the more you cut, the more you get! Kailaan is one of our new faves–truly delicious and easy to grow!

Direct sow starting at last frost date, or start indoors 4-6 weeks before, then transplant into fertile soil just after frost date. Does best in cool weather; succession sow in spring and again 14-16 weeks before first fall frost for a steady supply of sweet, young, tender stalks. Harvest shoots frequently, before flower buds open by cutting each stalk near its base. Leaves, shoots and flowers are all good eating, abundant, and wonderfully sweet and flavorful!
