Glossy, forest green, spoon-shaped leaves with thick stems. Tatsoi can be densely planted for salad mixes or thinned to 4” for full rosettes. Mild baby leaves are typically used in salads, but tatsoi can also be grown larger for stir-fries. We get multiple harvests from full sized plants, just like other cut and come again greens. This nutrient-packed green is a staple in many asian cuisines.

All of our seed is Non-GMO and Certified Organic by Washington State Department of Agriculture.

Finally, all of our offerings are open-pollinated (OP) so that you too can save and share seed from these plants!
