Asian Greens

This category of vegetables is so much fun! Grow unique crops you will enjoy in stir fries, salads, side dishes, and soups. Break out from the "same ol stuff". Experiment with at least one new variety each year, and you'll expand your kitchen's repertoire.

Asian greens are actually Brassicas and thus part of the cabbage family. These are our favorites.

Chinese cabbage - Also known as pe tsai, these cabbages form tight light-green heads.

 

 

 


Bok Choy - Now commonly referred to as Pak Choi, this group forms loose-leaved heads in a wide variety of sizes and colors.

 

 

 


Mizuna - This mild japanese green is both ornamental and delicious. Young leaves are great in salads or harvest as a mature head. It's a real gourmet treat.
