With flavors ranging from mildly pungent to sweet, Asian greens have traditionally been marketed in full-size bunches for use in stir-fries and soups, but are also being prepared in novel ways and used extensively in salad mixes here in the West. When plants begin to bolt, the tender shoots can also be harvested for bunching. With their diverse colors, flavors, and textures they allow growers to stand out at the market or add unique plate appeal. We encourage you to try both our familiar and more unusual types, such as komatsuna, mizuna, tatsoi, hon tsai tai, and choi sum.
Greens Asian Green 70 D Improved 200 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Heat-tolerant choi sum. Very similar to Gunsho, just a few days later to mature. Choi sums are among the most popular vegetables in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China. The stems are a vibrant bright green, very sweet and tender, and are usually harvested just before, or as the first few buds are opening. The stems regrow for cut-and-come-again harvest. Excellent in stir-fries, steamed, or in soups. Harvest in about 21 days for baby size or 45 days for full size.
Hon Tsai Tai Asian Greens 500 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Purple flower stems and buds. A Chinese specialty also known as Kailaan. The young plants produce quantities of long, pencil-thin, red-purple, budded flower stems. Pleasing, mild mustard taste for use raw in salads or lightly cooked in stir-fries or soups. For multiple harvesting of tender stems and leaves. Can be spring sown, but yields best when sown June through October for harvest from midsummer through winter (in mild areas). Hand harvest 8 to 10 inch long shoots by snapping them. Shoots that do not easily snap are over-mature. Harvest in about 21 days for a baby size and 45 days to fully mature.
Mizuna Asian Greens 500 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Mizuna Asian Greens have broad leaves that make for easy bunching. Similar to standard mizuna, but the attractive, finely-divided leaves are bulkier and less deeply cut. Grows well in warm and cool conditions. Mild flavor. Harvest in about 21 days baby or 40 for full maturity.
Shungiku Asian Greens 500 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Aromatic, edible chrysanthemum greens. Cut greens when about 4 to 8 inches tall for a flavorful addition to salads, vegetables, pickles, and sushi. Plant more thickly than other greens. Small orange and yellow chrysanthemum flowers appear later on unharvested plants. This is the preferred "fine" or "small" leaf strain. Harvest in about 21 days for a baby size and 45 days to fully mature.
Greens Asian Tatsoi 500 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Tatsoi is a standard salad mix ingredient. Its leaves form a compact, thick rosette. This plant has a long harvest period and a mild taste for salads, stir-fries, etc. Thin to six to eight inches apart for full-sized rosettes. It is unique and easy to grow.
This plant is suitable for late spring through autumn sowing. Spring sowings should be
made after last frost date to eliminate risk of premature bolting. Harvest in about 21(baby leaf) to 40 days mature.
