Choy Sum, Purple or Chinese Flowering Cabbage
50 days. Wildly gourmet flavor and vivid magenta stems make this Chinese green, also known as hon tsai tai, a favorite. The slim and crunchy stems are refreshing and especially well-suited to fresh snacking as well as cooking. The contrast between crispy stems, soft and tender leaves, and spicy yellow blooms makes for a phenomenal culinary experience. It is a particularly cold-tolerant leafy green so well suited to fall and winter harvests. Plants reach 12-36 inches tall and can be harvested multiple times as a cut-and-come-again green.
