(Rosette Bok Choy)
Brassica rapa var. rosularis
BASICS & HOW-TO
Tatsoi is not as well-known as its cousin bok choy, but it can be found at well-stocked Asian grocery stores, especially in areas with large Asian populations.
In the event that you can’t find tatsoi, it is very easy to grow in a wide range of climate regions. In fact, tatsoi is a particularly hardy and easy to grow plant – it will even grow under mild snow and survive temperatures as low as -10°C (15°F). Numerous seed companies offer varieties for the home gardener.
While tatsoi does have a pleasant taste on its own, it’s mild enough to work with a very wide variety of flavours.
