Komatsuna Green Brassica rapa var. perviridis. Often known as mustard spinach, its leaves are tender and mild. Komatsuna Green mustard seeds can be used as a cut-and-come-again crop at any stage of growth. Use steamed or stir-fried or in salads and soups. This is a traditional ingredient in Japanese cooking. It features excellent bolt resistance and cold tolerance so can be grown all year round. Green Komatsuna is one of the greatest vegetables. It's delicious raw or cooked - try a bunch of leaves as a salad on their own, or toss some leaves into a soup or stir-fry. It works in containers, and it's very cold hardy, so you can grow it all winter long if you provide some protection from hard frost. Matures in 21 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)

Komatsuna Red mustard seeds tolerate heat well and can be planted from spring to fall. The seeds do not need warm soil to germinate, so they can be planted in late winter for spring harvests as well. Try some in containers on the balcony. The leaves are round, flat and purple on top with green undersides and green stems. They are good in salads, sandwiches, and stir-fries. Use as a baby leaf in salad blends, or try them as microgreens. Komatsuna remains unfamiliar to many Western gardeners, but it is a West Coast Seeds staff favourite. Plants are fast-growing, productive, tasty, and very easy to grow. Matures in 21 days (baby), 40 days (full size). (Hybrid seeds)
