Sharaku Komatsuna

35 days. This new Japanese variety has smooth, tender, deep green leaves and a flavor that's earthy like Spinach and slightly tart like Sorrel. The loose, upright heads develop quickly from seed so you don't have to wait long before adding their vitamin-rich young leaves to salads or their mature leaves to stir-fries and braises. More heat and cold tolerant than many other Asian Greens, it can be grown year-round in more temperate climates. (OP.)

  • Information
  • World cuisine has introduced Asian Greens to cooks everywhere. These piquant leaves are a boon, for most varieties are quick and easily grown. Many types thrive practically year round and, like all Brassicas, prefer cool temperatures and evenly moist soil. Seeds germinate in cool soil (about 45°F) so you can get an early start in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Running out of room? Grow smaller varieties like Tatsoi or Mizuna in pots, hanging baskets or wooden boxes. For baby greens, sow thickly and scissor-harvest at 3" to 4" tall. If your season is hot and short, shade baby greens with row covers or grow in dappled sunlight.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
