Tatsoi - Certified Organic Seeds

Tatsoi - Certified Organic Seeds

(Brassica rapa-rosularis)

The name comes from Mandarin ( ta ke cai). It is also called Chinese flat cabbage, rosette pakchoi or broadbeaked mustard, spoon mustard, or spinach mustard. Cantonese transliterations include tatsoi, tat Choy.

A distinctly different kind of Asian green, TATSOI is a small, spoon-shaped green that delivers a unique flavour experience. A stocky plant similar to bok choy, tatsoi is native to China, where it is believed to have been cultivated since 500 AD.

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 cooler regions. Tatsoi is modest in size, but it is extremely cold tolerant withstanding temperatures down to -5 oC! Tatsoi tends to grow low to the ground when planted in autumn 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.
