Seeds or seedlings

The Asian vegetable 'Tatsoi' is an ancient biennial species of mustard cabbage from Japan and China, about 500 n. Chr. The fast-growing vegetable used for centuries forms spoon-shaped, dark green and white-veined leaves with a dense and open rosette. The leaf structure of this popular variety is smooth and creamy, with a distinctive pleasant mild-spicy flavor. The variety is high-yielding and can be harvested over a long period of time. Asian vegetables are consumed fresh or cooked.

Sow directly into the open air from February to April or in autumn from late July to September and plant for wintering from mid-September to early October.

Sown or sow in rows. Asian vegetables prefer a sunny to partially shaded location with permeable and nutrient-rich, humus-rich clay soil. Prepare the soil with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
For a longer harvest period, the flower bases should be broken out and care should be taken not to damage the heart during harvest. Harvest the leaves from the outside in to keep growth stable. To prevent the laying of eggs from cabbage flies, we recommend the use of vegetable protection nets. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
