Bok Choy Tatsoi Rosette HEIRLOOM Seeds

Bok Choy Tatsoi Rosette HEIRLOOM Seeds

Brassica rapa var. rosularis

Item #0145

45 days. The spoon-shaped, dark green, evenly spaced leaves make Tatsoi a plant worthy to be grown for its decorative value alone! More nutritious (high calcium and vitamin content) and stronger (slightly mustard-like) flavor than traditional bok choy; many consider it a superior flavor! Believed to be of very ancient origin. Very cold tolerant; withstands down to 15°F. Tatsoi can be harvested from under the snow!

This packet sows five 10-foot rows.

1/4" - 1/2"

Seed Spacing:
a group of 4 seeds every 6"

When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as soil can be worked. Sow again in late summer for fall crop. In mild climates you can even sow in the fall for early winter harvest.

When to start inside: Not recommended

Harvesting: Almost all parts of the plant at all stages can be used; seedlings, small leaves, large leaves, stems and flowering shoots. The smaller leaves will be enhanced by a touch of light frost. Cut leaves at the base of the stem; since the plant hugs the ground, be sure to wash harvested plant parts carefully to remove dirt.
