Tatsoi is a another green in the Brassicaceae family. It makes up the Narinosa group (Maybe - apparently there is some debate - see the comment below. This kind of debate is typical in organizing plants which is why I don't study botany!) It forms a head of compact spoon shaped leaves at maturity. We'll be growing it as baby greens, not as a head. It can be grown as a microgreen too. It likes cool weather which is why we are growing it for the wintergreens project.

Tatsoi is apparently really easy to grow. I followed the sowing directions from Johnny's for baby greens when I planted last week. In a few weeks I'm hoping for some spoon shaped leaves to photograph and eat!
