Tatsoi, Spinach Mustard Green – Vegetable Seeds
Tatsoi is also known as “spinach mustard”. It is a broad-leafed green vegetable, varying in color from pale green to very dark green. When eaten, tatsoi has a somewhat creamy texture and noticeably distinct flavor. Because of the spoon shape of its leaves, tatsoi is also known as “spoon mustard”. Tatsoi is a formidable plant and can withstand 15-degree weather and can even be harvested from underneath the snow.
Store tatsoi in cold refrigeration, isolated in the crisper drawer with other cold-storage vegetables. Tatsoi has a short shelf-life and will only last a few days. Store in a plastic bag and wait to wash until eating or cooking.
