Product Description:

Brassica rapa, Perviridis Group 45 days. Picture a melding of a tatsoi mustard and a pac choi, and you’ll have an idea of the essence of Green Giant. Bringing the best qualities of both crops, this exceptional variety produces large, spoon-shaped leaves in silky emerald with wide, succulent stems. An ideal selection for dense plantings so you can selectively harvest baby greens while allowing a portion of the plants to reach full size. Stands of Green Giant in our trials show robustly healthy plants with flawless foliage, when the typical mustard crops are choice snacking for flea beetles. Astoundingly bolt-resistant, Green Giant provides a season-long harvest of tender, mildly spiced leaves for salads, stir fries and brazing.
