Originally from Japan, this Asian vegetable belongs to the cabbage family. A low-growing annual plant with small, spoon-shaped leaves that resembles basil, tatsoi is also called spoon mustard, spinach mustard or bok choy rosette. This versatile vegetable has a mild mustardy flavor and is actually quite easy to grow! The plant itself looks very similar to spinach, although the stems are white and sweet.

Sow Green Tatsoi:

Till the soil 15 to 30 cm to loosen compacted soil and break up clods.

Incorporate 5-10 cm of Compost or Worm Humus before sowing the seeds.

Tatsoi like cold weather, but frost can wilt them, so consider sowing seeds indoors six weeks before the last frost and then transplanting outdoors.

Space the plants at least 15cm apart once they are 5 to 10cm tall.

Water once a week and add a layer of dry leaves to retain moisture.

Harvest the Green Tatsoi:

This quick vegetable can be harvested in just 3 weeks after planting for young greens or you can wait the full 7 weeks to harvest the mature leaves.
