Good buy

Germination rate was high and seedlings are quite hardy. The leaves are great to eat raw or cooked and caterpillars don't like them as much. Tatsoi is a perfect leafy green for subtropics.

Fantastic, easy to grow, mini leafy green

I’ve basically said it all in the title. It’s great for gardens and on balconies. I haven’t bought a packet of salad greens from the supermarket in months because it just keeps on providing! It grows back really quickly and is perfect for salads.

Easy to grow

This never fails. It grows quickly and you can use it in so many ways. I like it in stir-fries and one-pot meals. I put in heaps in the last minute of cooking and it shrinks quite a lot. A good leafy green.
