Broccoli ‘Hon Tsai Tai’

Brassica rapa var. purpurea

Traditional Chinese broccoli raab with tender dark green leaves and multiple vibrant purple flowering stalks.


Similar to broccoli raab but even more sweet and tender. A traditional Chinese green with dark green leaves and multiple purple flowering stalks. Best if harvested early at 8-10" lengths to promote branching and additional tender harvests.  Enjoy fresh in salads or sautéed.

Broccoli is a cool season crop that grows best in the spring or fall and does not tolerate summer heat. Prefers fertile, consistently moist, well-drained soil.
