Early Jade Gai Lan/Chinese Broccoli Seeds

Early Jade Gai Lan/Chinese Broccoli Seeds

Nutritious Garden Essential

Garden Gai Lan, also known as Chinese Broccoli Early Jade, originates from China and is part of the Brassica oleracea species. This cultivar has gained prominence globally for its flavorful and nutritious stems and leaves.

This variety presents an appealing aesthetic with its vibrant, deep green stems and glossy, broad leaves. Its robust growth forms a cluster of thick stems and lush foliage, making it a visually striking addition to gardens or vegetable plots.

The taste of Garden Gai Lan is characterized by its mild, slightly bitter flavor, reminiscent of broccoli but with a hint of sweetness. The stalks are tender and succulent, while the leaves offer a hearty texture, allowing for versatile culinary applications.

Cultivating Chinese Broccoli Early Jade from seed requires specific growing conditions. These plants thrive in cooler climates and perform best when grown in well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.5. Planting from seed involves sowing them directly in the garden or containers, placing seeds about a quarter-inch deep and spaced around 6 inches apart.

Consistent moisture is essential during germination and early growth stages. Once seedlings develop several true leaves, thin them to maintain proper spacing. Adequate sunlight, at least 6 hours per day, fosters healthy growth. Garden Gai Lan tolerates mild frosts and cooler temperatures, which can enhance its flavor.
