White-Flowered Kailaan Mustard


White-Flowered Kailaan Mustard

Brassica oleracea
(45-60 days) F-1 hybrid. Also known as Chinese Broccoli, Chinese Kale, Guy Lon or Gai Lan. Grown for its succulent stalks and leaves, it sends up tender 8" shoots topped with elegant little loose florets. Once the main stalk is cut, it coppices into many secondary shoots. The stems are snappy and a little spicy, excellent lightly steamed or stir-fried. Heat and cold tolerant, thrives in a wide range of climates and can be planted in late spring, late summer or early fall. Buds open to pretty four-petaled white blossoms. Catalog editor Elisabeth direct-seeded hers in spring under row cover and was harvesting florets through October—some for the skillet and some for summer flower bouquets. 160 seeds/g. Cold-hardy.
