Noble Jade
(F1) Asian Green Seed

Product ID: 4541

New! Easy, early harvests of thick spears.

Uniform plants with upright habits make for easier cultivation and harvest. Spears are tender and sweet, developing a mustardy flavor as they mature. Can be harvested 3–4 times or more under proper care and seasonal slotting. Attractive, sturdy white flowers open slowly, allowing for harvests pre-bloom until 1 or 2 flowers are open per shoot. Performs better at tighter spacing than our other mini broccoli varieties (4–6" in-row). Suitable for either direct-seeding or transplanting; days to maturity are from transplant. Similar to Happy Rich, though less heat tolerant and with a shorter harvest window. If growing in place of Happy Rich, plan for spring and fall harvests only, and in more frequent succession. This Chinese specialty (also known as Kailaan or Chinese kale) can be sold loose or in bunches. Avg. 107,200 seeds/lb. Packet: 500 seeds.
