Detailed Product Info

Over the centuries, East Asian gardeners have selected dozens of varieties of unique and highly useful brassicas. Tatsoi is one of our favorites. The lovely low growing rosettes of deep green leaves proclaim this plant's nutrient density. Raw or cooked, its delicate flavor and tender texture belie an inner resilience: it heartily survives the cold, thriving through fall frosts and into early winter's snow.

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.
