Asian Greens

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.

20-40 days. An easy-to-grow, traditional Japanese green from the town of Mibu, it can grow to 12" tall in hunky clumps of long, narrow dark green leaves with rounded tips and iridescent pale green stems. Its succulent leaves have a faint, sweet mustard flavor that intensifies as the plant matures. It is best enjoyed in baby leaf salad mixtures where its addictive flavor can shine, or in stir-fries for a milder taste. Perfect for cut-and-come-again scissor harvest, this vigorous grower is tolerant of heat but thrives as a cool weather crop. (OP)

Our versatile, easy and popular Asian Greens thrive in cool temperatures, tolerating mild frost. Sow when the danger of heavy frost has passed. Asian Greens appreciate soil with a moderate amount of organic matter dug in. Keep the soil evenly moist for a mild, sweet taste. When growing individuals, thin them to 8" to 10" apart. For ‘baby leaf’ harvesting, lightly broadcast seed, sprinkle with soil and water lightly. As the plants grow to about 3" tall, give them a “haircut” for salads and stir-fries. Feed regularly to enjoy one or two more cuttings from the initial sowing. In cool summer areas, seed at 10 to 14 day intervals, ensuring a steady harvest of fresh, vitamin-rich greens. Hot weather causes hot and/or bitter flavor and bolting. Your last sowing may be toward the end of summer for fall harvest. Protect with shade cloth at the hottest part of summer days if necessary.
