Tatsoi Green

(B. rapa) A distinctly different kind of Asian green, tatsoi is a small, spoon-shaped green that delivers a unique flavor experience. A stocky plant similar to bok choy, tatsoi is native to China where it is believed to have been cultivated since 500 AD. This unique, low-growing green made its way to Japan during the early Showa period (1312-1317) where the signature mellow, almost creamy, flavor was refined. A dependable source of vitamins in cool winter months, the dark, green leaves of this squat plant can often be found poking out from beneath a blanket of snow on Japanese farms. Tatsoi is modest in size, but it is extremely cold tolerant withstanding temperatures down to 15 degrees F! Tatsoi tends to grow low to the ground when planted in fall for winter harvests, responding to cool temperatures and hunkering down to tolerate the cold. These greens are typically harvested several times with a sharp knife, low at the base, and are ideal for ‘cut-and-come’ again harvesting. Seeds are typically planted just after the last frost for spring planting (Planting before last frost will result in premature bolting). Those spring-sown greens will grow more upright than their winter counterparts but are just as suitable for several harvests. To ensure a steady supply all year long, tatsoi is succession planted from spring through fall. Tatsoi can be harvested in every stage from microgreen, to baby leaf and mature heads; however, it is noted that the greens in the baby stage are most heat tolerant, resulting in farmers in warmer locations planting several spring successions close together and harvesting younger greens - Tatsoi is also a heat-tolerant green. The mild, mustard flavored tatsoi is a staple in Asian soups and stir fry, but it should be noted that this mild green is versatile enough to be considered a spinach substitute, excellent eaten raw, especially in salad mixes. When cooked, the greens are added at the very end to retain their delicate flavor and crunch. Tatsoi is an excellent addition to salad blends adding a crunchy, texture element. Work this cold hardy green into your fall garden lineup; enjoying the benefits of potent, homegrown nutrition all winter long. This delightful, antique, Asian green will shine through the toughest winters, bringing a healthy dose of those much-needed vitamins and minerals.

Review:

I don't write many reviews, but want to chime in on this one. I pampered these at the first planting. They did well. Then they bolted. I was disappointed til I sampled a leaf from the bolted plant - it was still very mild, and delicious. We were harvesting the leaves from our Tatsoi long after bolting, with the plants so tall they were flopped over. Didn't matter to us anymore whether they bolted, since they were still very good. When the first planting went to seed, we harvested it, threw it on an unused garden bed, and shortly thereafter had a thick, second crop of it. As a plus, the deer barely bothered with it. So, if you don't like to pamper your veggies, and don't want to worry about temperature swings and bolting, plant Tatsoi! We will be throw-and-growing Tatsoi again!

Review:

Love this plant. Juicy stems. Beautiful plant flat rosette on the ground. Great in soups or prpared like spinach. Had a tendency to bolt, but may have been to temperature swings in the spring.

Review:

This is one of our all-time favorite greens. It is up in a flash, grows quickly in fertile soil, and is delicious! You can use it in salads and stir-frys. Plant in the mid-August for fall use, or plant in early-mid-September in a hoophouse for later fall and winter use.

Review:

I grow this every year in my Wyoming garden and it does very well for me. My kid's like to pick the leaves and eat them when they play outside. After the plant flowers my kids even enjoy eating the cabbage flavored blossoms. If you're looking for easy and hardy plants, this is a good plant for you.
