Chinese broccoli is also known as kailaan or Chinese kale. It is a popular Chinese green vegetable and is grown for its dark green leaves and thick, tender, crisp, delicious stems. This best-selling high yielding variety has excellent uniformity and is disease resistant. While heat and cold tolerant, cool temperatures will produce smaller stalks.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost to late summer/early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest main stalk when it reaches 8-10' tall and 2-3 flowers are open. After this is cut, the plant branches freely for an extended harvest but stems and leaves will be smaller.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Stir-fry stalks, leaves and buds with garlic, a little sugar and some rice wine or boil and dress with oyster sauce. Use in soups, sukiyaki, ohitashi and tempura. Can be cooked like choy sum.
