A Chinese specialty also known as Kailaan. The young plants soon branch and produce quantities of long, pencil- thin, red-purple, budded flower stems. Pleasing, mild mustard taste for use raw in salads or lightly cooked in stir-fries or soups. For multiple harvesting of tender stems and leaves. Hand harvest 8-10” long shoots by snapping them. Shoots that do not easily snap are over-mature. The taste of this asian brassica is similar to broccoli. We love this green at the farm, and since every part of the plant is edible we harvest and replant it often.
