Chinese Kale, Green Leaf Gailan

Large, delicious stems and flower buds are cooked like broccoli, but it is easier to grow and thrives in much warmer weather. The texture is very tender and crisp, perfect for stirfries, soups and more. A great variety for Asian markets. Give it a try!

Review:

I'm so happy I bought these. Next to chard, they're my favorite plant to grow out of all my plants. They are not only beautiful to look at, they are super easy to grow, fast, and seemingly pest free (so far). I plant in spring, and they are ready within a month and a half. I did let them go into to summer last year, and they did just fine. they did not bolt. I love to lightly saute them with olive oil, celery and garlic. I might even try to grow them this winter here in the PNW. It's a gamble. But worth it to me.

Review:

This is my favorite gailan. It is quick to produce tender leaves, then stalks and finally flower shoots. All parts are highly edible and all parts are delicious. This year, I planted in the spring and again in the fall. Cut one leaf or stalk, and several more will grow. We enjoyed eating it until about two weeks ago. Now it is flowering. I am leaving the flowers for the bees, and seeding yet another crop we will hrow under a row cover.

Very high quality greens

What are the pros? Structural integrity and size

What are the cons? None

Review:

The quality of the leaves, as in, the "sheen," is very high. These are the best "collard greens" that I grow (brassicae for salad or "cuvee"-portugese collards). Highly recommended, better than lacinato.

Great Tasting All Purpose Gree

What are the pros? Great green for general use

What are the cons?

Review:

Though Gailan is associated with Asian cuisine in the United States, we love this green because it can be used in everything. It is a great broccoli substitute in any recipe calling for brocolli. The flavor is great, it matures much faster, it is easy to grow from seed, and there is no worry about whether or not it will form a head. If your garden is small and you can't have 6 broccoli plants dominating half of it all winter, gailan is the answer. You can grow the plants in tight rows and harvest out as they get large enough to use. The main danger with Gailan is that it will get left in the garden too long and will get tough. We succession plant it and harvest early, usually before the flower buds form--though it is fine even when the first flowers have formed. If you wait too much longer, it will get tough.

This is an easy green for indoor gardening. I just planted under regular shop lights with a timer set for 8hrs per day. In 5 wks I was getting greens for fresh salads. Very tasty.
