Certified Organic Seed
Sweet greens with succulent stems in purple and pink.
A beautiful bold choi for the home or market gardener! Substantial dark green leaves abound from bright stems in shades of purple and pink. Strong upright habit makes bunching a breeze. Makes a great baby green, though the color deepen and become more vivid as the plants mature. Great for spring and fall production. Wonderfully mild and sweet. Another great open-pollinated variety from Frank Morton.

Sow 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.
