Believed to be of very ancient origin, the spoon-shaped, dark green, evenly spaced leaves make tatsoi a plant worthy to be grown for its decorative value alone! More nutritious (high calcium and vitamin content) and more flavorful (slightly mustard-like) than traditional bok choy; many consider it a superior flavor, and it is prized for its smooth texture. Very cold tolerant; withstands temperatures down to 15°F. Tatsoi can be harvested even when there is snow on the ground!

Great for high altitudes

I grew this Tatsoi green this summer. I live at 7,300 above sea level. It has not bolted, has produced a huge crop, grew in partial shade, is still growing despite being snowed on. Love the flavor. Very mild and great texture. Will be growing again next spring.

I live in zone 9b, and had these growing throughout the winter. They were very easy to grow and I just harvest the outer leaves. I harvested some for hot pot and they were delicious! It was very tender and mild in flavour, but delicious in the soup.

I planted to sprout in big saucers, but it sprouted and then died off. I will try planting again in the fall to see if it will do better in single pots. Very disappointing. I need to study what your packets say more closely. Plants that I get from my organic nursery guys do great in my environment.

Owner Response: Hi Debby, We are sorry you were disappointed with these seeds. It sounds as though they may have bolted (flowered quickly) rather than forming the beautiful rosette. Bolting can happen from environmental stress due to conditions like transplanting, drought, and heat however, it sounds like the seeds performed (germinated). Growing these in the milder temperatures of fall might be easier for you. We do hope that reading the seed packet, which includes tips like these, will be helpful, and we are always here to help.
