Detailed Product Info

Tatsoi is delectable. When quickly braised with garlic in oil, it softens into a tapestry of sweet leaves and tender stems that is hard to beat. It's also beautiful, forming a swirl of little spoon-like leaves that are of a deeper green hue than nearly any other plant in the garden. And, on top of all that, they're fast: tatsoi can be harvested young within three or four weeks of planting, and fully-grown plants take under two months. They last well into the colder months and can be grown successfully all winter with protection. Once you've discovered its charms, your garden will never be without it.

Growing Instructions

Sow Tatsoi indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning 3-4 weeks before last frost. Can be sown straight through until September, though spring sowings can bolt early and be taken by flea beatles; consider using row cover. Sow more densely than indicated for baby clippings. Harvest whole head--not really a cut-and-come-again green. Superb in fall and winter.
