Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location or partial shade in hot areas. In temperate areas, sow in late summer/early fall as well. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. When the plant has a strong root structure, harvest a couple of leaves from each plant. Mature plants can be cut back 1-2" above soil for re-growth for a cut-and-grow again harvest.

Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Use in recipes that use pak choi or spinach. Baby leaves add a mild flavor and lovely color to salads. Sauté, steam or boil mature leaves and stalks.
