Purple Choy Sum 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 the crispy stems, soft and tender leaves and spicy yellow blooms makes for a phenomenal culinary experience. A particularly cold-tolerant leafy green, it is so well suited to fall and winter harvests. Plants reach 12-36 inches in height and can be harvested multiple times as a cut-and-come-again green.
