Tender, narrow, beautiful magenta colored stock and midrib. Leaves are medium dark green and nearly smooth when young, and slightly savoyed at maturity. Perfect for scissor harvest as baby leaves, it has a mild earthy flavor that is lovely in salads. This heat tolerant variety will also tolerate light frost.
Height is 21-24 inches. Days to Maturity: 28 baby, 55 bunching. Planting season: Late spring to early summer or late summer to early fall.
Culinary tips: Use in recipes that use pak choi or spinach. Baby leaves add a mild flavor and lovely color to salads. Saute, steam or boil mature leaves and stalks.
