Organic Komatsuna (250g)
Minimum order 10 individual items from Taiwan Farms.
Organic Komatsuna or Japanese mustard spinach (Brassica rapa var. perviridis) is a leaf vegetable from Taiwan farms. It is a variety of Brassica rapa, the plant species that yields the turnip, mizuna, napa cabbage, and rapini. It is grown commercially in Japan and Taiwan. The plant is utilized for both its tender leaves as well as its flowering stems and can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves can be harvested at any stage and can be snipped one at a time or the entire head can be taken. If you take just a few leaves, they will regrow and extend the length of time you have to harvest. The flavor of komatsuna is somewhere between that of a mild mustard and cabbage combination. The young tender leaves can be mixed with other greens for salads or use more mature leaves in stir fries.
