Care & Harvest

ūüí°Temperature: Tatsoi prefers cooler temperatures (60-70F), and if placed in higher temperatures, it will turn bitter, bolt, and flower early.


‚úāÔłŹ Pruning: Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod.¬†


ūü•¨ Harvest: Tatsoi can be harvested as early as three weeks from planting for baby greens, or wait for mature leaves. The outer leaves can be harvested by cutting at least one inch above the base of the rosette to let the small inner leaves grow. Alternately, the whole plant can be harvested.

Quick Facts

Beautiful, glossy, spoon-shaped plant native to China and considered to be an ancient green because of its long history of cultivation. It has been cultivated since 500 A.D.

Tatsoi is a superfood high in vitamins A and C, fiber, calcium and folate, the latter of which is needed to make red and white cells in our bone marrow and to produce both DNA and RNA. Tatsoi also contains phytonutrients, which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Its glossy, green, spoon-shaped leaves are edible along with their stems and provide a bright, earthy-sweet flavor with mustard notes.

Tatsoi can be used fresh or cooked, similar to spinach. It has a sweet and nutty flavor and pairs well with citrus and sweet flavors. Try not to cook the leaves for an extended amount of time. It is best to sauté them just until they begin to wilt or add the leaves near the end of the cooking process.
