  • Yukina Savoy Mustard
    NEW!

    Greens, Yukina Savoy (Organic)

    $3.25$6.00
    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. A good substitute for spinach in the summer. Seed produced by Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath, Oregon.

  • Mizspoona Salad Select

    Mizspoona Salad Select (Organic)

    $3.50$9.50
    Brassica rapa. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

    Mizuna is one of our favorite mustard family salad greens and Tatsoi is too. Combine the two and you get Mizspoona Salad Select. The awesomeness increases exponentially. Very mild mustard flavor delicious when eaten raw in salads & is also quite tasty cooked. Mizspoona  inherits the vigorous growth & cold hardiness of both its parents. Slight variation in leaf & stem shape to keep you from getting bored but not so much that your taste buds get confused. This mostly uniform genepool resembles a dark green monster Mizuna more than Tatsoi. Mizspoona Salad Select is brought to you by none other than Frank Morton.

  • nozaki early napa cabbage

    Napa Cabbage, Nozaki Early (Organic)

    $3.00$6.00
    Brassica rapa. 60-70 days.

    Nozaki Early is a tall napa cabbage with super early heads that are very juicy. The 2-5 lb heads are perfect for kimchi and stir fry.  Best covered with row cover to prevent all the other animals in the world from eating them. As Sarah says, “Everybody likes to eat napa cabbage, especially the bugs.” For best quality sow in late summer for fall heading.  Even though we should have planted them a month earlier, most of our late September plant-out headed up in January. We have also had good luck with early spring plantings. Do keep an eye on spring sown plants and eat them before they bolt.

  • Luck Dragon Pak Choi

    Pak Choi, Luck Dragon (Organic)

    $3.50$12.50
    Brassica rapa. 35-40 days.

    Sweet & crunchy green-stemmed baby pak choi. Impressively vigorous in the cool weather & it really shined in our greenhouse. Pak choi is a very good choice as a greenhouse/ hoophouse crop in the spring & fall. Produces a lot of food fast per square foot. Leaves are erect & glossy green color. The leaf petioles are crunchy yet pliable & resist cracking. Slow to bolt & nicely holds a medium-small size. Luck Dragon is currently an F2, which refers to the second year after dehybridization, but there was little apparent variability to be seen in our test seeding. I wonder how that happened? However, we did cross in a tiny bit of mizuna into the population for our later plant breeding escapades. We will continue to select it for general reliability & taste. In the mean time, it is off to an excellent start.

  • Shungiku, Komi (Organic)

    Shungiku, Komi (Organic)

    $3.50$9.50

    Chrysanthemum coronarium.

    A deeply serrated leaf Shungiku with long stems & mild favor. Usually cultivated similarly to broccoli raab & harvested into bunches. With its delicious mild floral flavor, shungiku is something between an herb & a vegetable; we like to add it to stir fry, beans, omelets, soups – just about anything. Smaller leaves make a good all weather salad green. Frost resistant to some degree & quality is best during cool weather. Shungiku is also known as edible leaf garland chrysanthemum.
