Tsa Tsai Zha cai


Chinese swollen stem mustard is a cool season crop. The ideal temperature to promote stem swelling is 46°F-56°F. It usually takes 3-4 weeks for 5-6 leaves to grow and stems are harvested in 120 days. Young leaves may be harvested and used like any mustard green, in soups, stir-fries and pickled. The swollen stem base can be peeled and cooked but is most known as Zhacia or Cha Tsai (pickled with salt and chili). It is added to fried rice, soups and tofu dishes for flavor.Approx. 100 seeds in packet
