Choy, Yellow Heart Winter

97% of 100

This beautiful variety from China is of the best-tasting and cold-hardiest greens. It’s also called “Golden Flower in the Snow,” which is a nod to the incredible cold tolerance of this variety. Cool weather triggers leaves to turn a brilliant yellow color, making the central rosette of leaves look like a massive gilded flower. It is grown year-round in China but especially in the cool months as a nutritious staple. These low-growing plants are so winter rugged, in fact, that they survived single digit temperatures at the Baker Creek farm. Plants are just 5-8 inches tall. The plants are super cold-loving, great for extra-late season planting and ornamental design. Extra tender leaves are delicious cooked or in salads. A taste test winner!
