Yukina Savoy (Organic)
Brassica rapa. 25 days baby, 45 days full.
This dark green spoon-leafed Asian green is very similar to Tatsoi but with larger leaves and more savoyed texture. Yukina Savoy is one of the best mild mustards out there, as it works well as both a salad green when small, and sauté green when larger. Stems are a light green and pleasantly crunchy, almost like small pak choi stems. More heat resistant than other mustards and relatively slow to bolt.
Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.
As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested & found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.
Sow in pots indoors February through May or August through September. Transplant 3-4 weeks after sprouting. May also be direct sown in early spring or late summer. Hot weather may cause premature bolting and/ or extra spicy flavor. Succession sow to extend harvest. Flowers are edible.
Collect seeds from overwintered or early spring sown plants, selecting for slowest bolting. Cut seed heads when pods are dry, thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow to clean. Isolate from other Brassicas of the same species by ½ mile.
