This is a quick growing vegetable with a slightly bitter taste and crisp texture. Used in soups and stir-fries or eaten as a steamed vegetable, it is rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C.
Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover lightly with Yates Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist.
Choose a sunny, well drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. The plants produce single stems and are heat tolerant. Harvest opening flowerbuds, young stems and leaves. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Control leaf-eating grubs with a Yates caterpillar killer (Success or Dipel) or a Yates Vegetable Dust (Derris).
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
