Brassica rapa subsp. narinosa

This delicious and beautiful Asian green grows quickly and easily in both spring and fall. Rosette Tatsoi speedily forms round flat rosettes of rich green, teardrop shaped leaves. At maturity, the big heads measure a foot in diameter. Tatsoi’s tender, succulent leaves have a wonderful mild flavor, sweeter than most other Asian greens. Tatsoi adds both color and flavor to fresh green salads or enjoy it in stir-fries. This vitamin and anti-oxidant rich powerhouse is a great ornamental edible.

To Start Outdoors

In very early spring, plant in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Sow seeds 2 to 3 in. apart in rows spaced 8 to 12 in. apart. Cover 1/4 in. deep and keep evenly moist to ensure good germination. When well-established, thin seedlings 6 to 8 in. apart, so they have room to mature into large rosettes.  

To Start Indoors

Several weeks before last frost, sow seeds in a container of seed starting mix 2 in. apart and cover 1/4 in. deep. Keep moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are about 3 in. tall. Transplant outdoors 6 to 8 in. apart, as plants mature into large rosettes.

Growing Notes

Tatsoi thrives in rich soil and cool growing conditions. Space seedlings properly and keep well weeded and watered for best tasting, full heads. Feed several times during the quick growing season with fish emulsion or another high nitrogen fertilizer for best growth. Sow again in late summer for a fast growing fall crop.

Harvest And Use

Use early thinnings for salads. Cut whole mature rosettes of leaves when plump and well filled out - they reach a foot or more across! Use the pretty, dark green, teardrop shaped leaves for fresh, tasty salads, quick stir fries, or braised until tender-crisp. Tatsoi is both mild and sweet tasting and absolutely chock full of vitamins and antioxidants.
