Asian Greens

← Part of Vegetables, Gourmet Vegies

It’s a fact of life, “fresh is best”.  There is simply no better way of having fresher vegetables packed with nutrients and fibre, than harvesting them right from your very own garden. Pohlmans Gourmet Vegetables® Asian Greens consists of four great varieties: Pak Choi Green & Red, Tatsoi and Yukina.  Pak Choi Green has bright dark green leaves. Pak Choi Red has red upper leaves with bright green stems.  Tatsoi, also known as ‘spoon mustard’ has small, dark green spoon-shaped leaves that have a mild mustard flavour.  Yukina looks like a larger version of Tatsoi.  The thick, dark green, spoon shaped leaves grow upright on pale green petioles.  The leaves of all can be used in stir fries, salads, soups, Asian dishes, or steamed.

Care: Ideally, plant into a garden bed which is fertile, enriched in organic matter, and well drained.  Mulching is recommended to help conserve water. Always use a reputable potting mix ideally incorporated with some water crystals to aid watering during the warmer weather.  Place in a sunny position.
