Brassica rapa var. chinensis
This is Tokyo Bekana! Although a member of the mustard family, leaves have a very mild flavour, with no hint of any heat. The leaves are a gorgeous light green colour. Stems and mid-rib have a crunch and flavour similar to young bok choy.
Delicious eaten raw or chopped into a salad. Since the stem and mid-rib are a little thicker, they are great sautéed/stir-fried or added to an Asian or vegetable soup. Flavour is juicy, texture is tender.
Grows well throughout the year - spring, summer or fall. Cool conditions are preferred.
Although similar to an Asian cabbage/lettuce cross, it does not attract cabbage butterflies.
Grows up to 2 feet tall and just as wide.
Plant in a full sun/partially sunny location. Start seeds indoors at least 2 weeks prior to planting out, or sow directly. Seeds will germinate in approximately 3 days.
Spacing: Closer together for “cut and come again” harvesting or 1-foot apart to harvest full size heads.
I highly recommend adding it to your garden or greenhouse. It’s a new favourite for me!
