Product Description

This is a very popular variety of dark green Asian salad greens that has a spoon-like shape, a pleasant and sweet aroma flavour that is like a mild mustard flavour, similar to bok choi. Tatsoi is generally eaten raw but may be added to soups at the end of the cooking period. When tatsoi is mixed with other greens it enhances the flavour and nutritional value. Tatsoi may not be available in your regular grocery store. Specialty markets may carry it, or it can be grown from seeds, in warmer climates.

These plants form low growing(10cm) rosettes of dark green glossy leaves with pale green/white stems. Leaves have a mild mustard flavour that is commonly used fresh as a salad green or cooked as a vegetable in stir-fries and soups. Is a very popular variety for baby leaf production and produces in around 21 days. Very cold tolerant. Also known as Rosette Pak Choi.
