What are the pros? Resistsfrost/pests productive.

What are the cons? Takes some time to get big

Review:

This beauty grew the best out of a mid-summer planting of mixed oriental greens. Pest resistant, It took it's time to get big, but now that it's mature, even the frost can't stop it from producing (writing as of Dec 1st). That surprised me for the leaves being so tender. I chop and drop it into soups or pinch up in salads. Grows huge! Cut-and-come-again leaves grow to 18" I would grow it again.

What are the pros? Fast growing, tastes

What are the cons? Aphids love it

Review:

I love this stuff so much. It came up really fast in the hottest, driest part of the summer, and really thrived. The first batch got completely infested with aphids from my melon patch, but I cut it down and cleared out the old melon vines, and the plants grew back with no aphids to be found. It grows vigorously and takes the heat and the cold. I just harvested some today, December 1st, that withstood a 25 degree night. It doesn't taste spicy at all to me, and it makes a fantastic salad. The second cutting didn't have a hint of bitterness. It also has a firmer texture than lettuce, which makes it easier to clean and store.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Others are better

Review:

This was easy to grow, but we simply like pak choi and tatsoi better. The flavor was ok, not too spicy. We just thought the other types of greens had better texture.

What are the pros? grows fast, easy, delicious

What are the cons? bolts in mild heat

Review:

My first time direct sowing a garden was this past spring. The komatsuma was the first of the seed to pop up, great for garden morale! It grew very quickly, keeping pace with the pink radishes. Within a couple of weeks, from one row we had plenty of young greens for salads. Larger leaves were excellent wilted with a bit of olive oil & lemon juice. Tastes like a cross between spinach and mustard. Delicious, succulent, mild, and full of interesting flavor. Extremely versatile in the kitchen. The only drawback was that they bolted pretty soon into the season, in 80 degree weather. Leaves did not get bitter upon bolting, however, so we kept on eating until they were gone. Now I'm just waiting for the weather to cool off a bit so I can sow some more. My husband also loved it and declared that we'll always have komatsuma in our garden. A good standby for beginners. :)

Review:

Out of an early set of germinating seeds, the Komatsuma usually always perks up first. I've harvested several heads already this season, with more on the way.A great little green. They germinate and mature quickly, plus they're just a nice addition to a stir-fry or salad. Very recommended.
