When young, the tender green cotyledons transition to a captivating reddish-purple hue, perfect for garnishing salads, sandwiches, and dishes that need a pop of color. In its mature form, Red Tatsoi brings a mild mustardy flavor with a hint of earthiness, suitable for stir-fries, soups, and as a steamed side dish.

When aiming for microgreens, sow the seeds densely on the soil's surface, ensuring a consistent moisture level for optimal germination.

Harvest when leaves reach their full splendor around 40 days. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist, and you'll be rewarded with a prolific yield of these stunning leaves.
