Also known as Spinach Mustard or Spoon Mustard, these diminutive, spoon-shaped greens make a pretty, edible edging for the kitchen garden. The leaves form shiny rosettes, great for both baby leaves harvested in the cut-and-come-again’ method and mature harvest at 6" to 8" tall. Tatsoi grows fast, so you can sow successively from spring to fall. Even in hot weather, you can use the tender leaves, discarding the stems when they become woody. Tatsoi is a low-calorie source of Vitamin C, calcium, carotenoids, folate, potassium and phytochemicals for healthy teeth, bones and eyes! It’s lovely stir-fried in a drizzle of garlic-chili oil and freshly grated ginger root, and plated under grilled salmon or broiled scallops and topped with a scattering of Crispy Fried Shallot Rings.

Average seed life: 3 years.

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.
