Grown for its spicy hot leaves which can be sown in succession from summer to early autumn. The flavours get hotter as the leaves mature. This leaf stands well in severe cold weather so winter hardy. Pick the leaves as required.
Grow your own tasty colourful salad leaves which are packed full of nutrients. There is nothing quite as special and rewarding as going out to your own garden and selecting home grown produce to use in your meals.
The interest in what we have classed liberally as "Oriental Vegetables" increases every year. They can be used raw in salads, or lightly cooked for use in stir frys and numerous Chinese style meals. We hope you will be tempted to give something different a try.
