Brassica rapa narinosa
A dark green tatsoi that is finely flavored. Black Knight is spoon-shaped, thick and compact. Like all tatsoi, it has a high vitamin content. If you don’t know the joys of growing tatsoi in your garden, you are missing out! This fuss-free plant produces copious amounts of spoon-shaped greens that are essential to many Asian recipes. Every year we grow tatsoi in the cool season and have more than we can use.
Tatsoi is an ancient vegetable with spoon-shaped leaves. Very decorative in the way it grows and also delicious. Leaves can be individually harvested for a prolonged harvest. For southern California growers in milder climates, the growing period can be almost 10 months out of the year. Great for late spring and early autumn growing as it can tolerate warmer weather without turning bitter.
Recommended Planting Requirements: Tatsoi is very easy to grow and will tolerate poor soils. Best when grown in soil with added organic matter. Need help starting your seeds? Check out our seed starting videos on Youtube.
Growing Recommendation: Watering regularly is critical to good growth. In warmer climates watering more often may be needed. Mulch can be added to reduce the evaporation of moisture from the soil.
Harvesting & Storage: Like most greens, you can trim wanted leaves from the plant as needed. Harvest before flowering for the best flavor.
