Tatsoi. an Asian Spinach Type Green

Found this delicious green at our local organic fruits and vegetable market.
It is beautiful and so tasty. Cooks in an instant. Using it this time in
my Portuguese Kale Soup. Look it up on Google.

Tatsoi (Brassica narinosa or Brassica rapa var. rosularis) (in Chinese: 塌棵菜, 瓢儿菜, 乌塌菜, or 塌古菜; and, in Japanese: タアサイ or 塌菜), also called Spinach mustard, Spoon mustard, or Rosette bok choy, is an Asian variety of Brassica rapa grown for greens. This plant has become popular in North American cuisine as well, and is now grown throughout the world.

The plant has dark green spoon-shaped leaves which form a thick rosette. It has a soft creamy texture and has a subtle yet distinctive flavour.

It can be grown to harvestable size in 4550 days, and can withstand temperatures down to 10C (15F). Tatsoi can be harvested even from under the snow.
