Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
(Spinach mustard) Traditional Japanese green related to mustard but milder and sweeter. The spoon-shaped leaves can be picked at any stage. When young they are very tender with a mild mustard bite, and as they mature they develop a crunchier texture with a sharper flavour. Young leaves are wonderful in salads, spring rolls, stir-fries and pasta, while mature leaves can be added to soups and stews, steamed or pickled. During the Edo period, it was a specialty of the village of Komatsugawa, now part of Tokyo. According to tradition, the local shrine offers komatsuna to the deities on New Year’s Eve and to those who come to pray on New Year’s Day. A quick and easy crop. Thrives in containers, even in winter if protected from hard frost. 25-40 days.
