Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Green Tatsoi is renowned for its cold tolerance, making it suitable for planting in cooler climates or during colder months. To grow, select a location that gets ample sunlight. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in rows, spacing them about 6-8 inches apart. The soil should be well-draining and kept consistently moist. Given its rosette growth pattern, ensure that each plant has enough space to expand. Typically, in 40-50 days, you'll have fully-grown, shiny dark-green Tatsoi leaves ready for harvest.
