Mustard Greens - Tatsoi - Brassica navinosa
Hardy Annual Tatsoi is a Chinese non-heading mustard, a great green to add to salad or stir-fry. Dark, round spoon-shaped leaves grow on broad, tender, crisp white stalks, with a large celery-like base. They have a tangy, mild mustard flavor.
Soil & Water: Tatsoi greens prefer rich, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5 and plenty of added organic matter. Water regularly and evenly to avoid bitterness.
Planting & Growing: Tatsoi prefers cooler weather, but tolerates warm weather. Start indoors 3 weeks before the last frost and continue planting every two weeks until midsummer.
Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting individual leaves after the center rosette has begun to develop.
