Mustard Seeds - Hon Tsai Tai
(Brassica rapa) 40 days to maturity. This Chinese specialty vegetable is well-known as purple-flowered Choy Sum, meaning ‘vegetable heart’ in Cantonese. The flower stalks, leaf stalks and buds are deep purple, with color intensifying in cold weather. Grows vigorously in fertile soil, producing up to forty pencil-thick flowering shoots. Shoots and leaves have a pleasant mild mustard flavor good for stir-fries, braising and soups. Also good for microgreens. Enjoy!
