Tsa tsai Round


Tsa tsai Round
 
Previous Mustard  Seed #284 

Tsa Tsai is a popular and unique mustard variety from Southwest China and called Szechuan or Sichuan vegetable. It is also known as swollen stem mustard or pressed stem mustard because the stem enlarges into thick tuber-like bumps just below the petioles. Its stem will grow 4”-6” in diameter and weigh up to pound. Chinese swollen stem mustard is a cool season crop. The ideal temperature to promote stem swelling is 46F-56F. It usually takes 3-4 weeks for 5-6 leaves to grow and stems are harvested in 120 days. Young leaves may be harvested and used like any mustard green, in soups, stir-fries and pickled. The swollen stem base can be peeled and cooked but is most known as Zhacia or Cha Tsai (pickled with salt and chili). It is added to fried rice, soups and tofu dishes for flavor.

  • Approx. 1100-1200 seeds in packet. (A seed will vary in weight and size within a given seed lot. The number of seeds stated is only an estimate.)
  • Maturity: Approx. 120 days
  • Planting season: Late summer to early fall
