How to use Tatsoi


Tatsoi is a wonderful substitute for spinach or lettuce in a salad. It can be steamed, lightly sautéed and added to a stir fry or added to soup. Its a very versatile green and belongs to the brassica family.

Tatsoi can be harvested between 3-7 weeks after planting. When the seedlings have four or more leaves, gently transfer them to large containers, a veg bed or into the garden. Make sure to trowel your soil if its a bit hard. Tatsoi plants like sunny spots and well drained soil.

You can individually pick young leaves, and leave the plant to continue to grow or harvest the whole plant. Its best to pick the whole Tatsoi plant just before the flower buds are tightly closed and green.
