The dark green, heavily savoyed leaves grow atop thick bunches of pale green petioles giving it a spinach-like appearance. In summer, the plant reaches nearly a foot in height. In winter, it grows in a rosette close to the ground. As with Tatsoi, individual leaves can be picked continuously for several weeks. Heat and cold tolerant. Excellent for microgreens and baby leaf production.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost to early summer or late summer/early fall. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Optimum growing temperatures are in the 60s°F. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting. Mulch fall crops to avoid premature bolting. Harvest young baby leaves for salad mix or harvest the whole plant when fully mature at 10-12" tall. For micro-greens, sow seeds in spring to summer in sandy soil in a bright but cool location. Broadcast seeds on soil and cover with a thin layer. Keep uniformly moist. Harvest by cutting when seedlings reach 3-4".
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Use in salad, sauté, soup and stir-fry. Excellent as baby leaf and microgreens.
